The Erie Fire Department’s smoke alarm giveaway is proving to be a big success…. So much so that the supply has run out.
Firefighters tell Action News that the first 1,700 smoke detectors have already been given away. But we are also being told that another shipment is scheduled to arrive in Erie in the near future.
Firefighters say they will let us know so that we can let you know when the program will resume.
Fire experts say that about 900 American lives would be saved each year if every home had working smoke detectors.
