The City of West Kelowna finds the results of a recent smoke alarm campaign – alarming.
The local fire department went door-to-door in West Kelowna visiting 65 residences in a mobile home community.
“The results of this initiative showed that of the homes visited, 58 per cent did not have a smoke alarm present, or had alarms that were either not working or expired,” the city said in a news release.
“For those homes without protection, fire personnel installed maintenance-free 10-year smoke and carbon monoxide alarms at no cost to the resident.”
This is fire prevention week.
