Sadly, 45 people in Washington lost their lives due to fire last year. Of the deaths that occurred in homes, recreational vehicles, or other places where people were sleeping, nearly 70% were reported to have no working smoke alarms. This trend is alarming – and preventable. Ensure your home is protected with working smoke alarms, and test them monthly to ensure proper operation.
