ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County Fire Rescue gave away lifesaving tools to the Oakland community this week.
Firefighters went door-to-door, making sure residents have working smoke alarms.
Fire crews also offered free installation to those who did not.
The fire marshal said this is a preventative measure to avoid future tragedy.
“So this is a life insurance policy to ensure people can get out of fires safely,” said Orange County Fire Marshal David Kilbury. “Once out, stay out.”
The fire marshal also said his priority is keeping the community safe.
Firefighters said another goal of this community outreach is making sure people are prepared if a fire happens in their home.
