Smoke alarms save lives. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to warn you so that you have time to get out. According to the National Fire Protection District (NFPA) from 2009 – 2013, three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (38%) or no working smoke alarms (21%).

American Red Cross and North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District are working together to provide smoke detectors to our local homeowners (up to 3 detectors per residence). If you do not have working smoke detectors in your home, please stop by the Fire District administration office located at 866 Oriole Way, Incline Village, NV and complete the necessary forms to obtain your smoke detector(s).

Some important tips to remember regarding smoke detectors:
