Congressman Lawler and Chaverim Coordinator Margaretten Install Smoke Alarms

By C. G. Hoffman

Congressman Mike Lawler joined renowned Monsey askan and Chaverim of Rockland coordinator Yossi Margaretten in his home to spread awareness about the importance of having working smoke alarms in every home.

"We're working together here today to install free smoke detectors in homes," Congressman Mike Lawler shares. "If you or your family don't have a working smoke detector, please reach out to the American Red Cross so we can immediately install it. Smoke alarms save lives. they are critically important, and this program is free of charge."

The event was coordinated with the American Red Cross and is part of the “Sound the Alarm” campaign, which is dedicated to equipping residences throughout Rockland County with essential fire prevention tools.

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. Fire spreads fast, and working smoke alarms give families early warning so that the entire family can get outside quickly.

Safety Tips:

   Install smoke alarms in every sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of your home, as well as the basement.

   It is best to use interconnected smoke alarms so that when one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound together.

   Smoke alarms should be tested once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.

   A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.

   Working smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan.
