The Los Angeles Fire Department, in conjunction with MySafe:LA, Los Angeles Unifed School District and the Los Angeles County Fire Department will hold a press conference tomorrow, Friday, March 7, 2014, at 9:30 a.m., on the South Lawn of City Hall to formally launch the “Fire Burns. Smoke Kills.” Smoke Alarm Campaign.
Interim LAFD Fire Chief James Featherstone and LA County Fire Chief Daryl Osby will urge the public to ensure that their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are operational and installed on every level of their home, both inside and outside of sleeping areas. The community is encouraged to test their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms monthly and to change the batteries in conjunction with changing their clocks as part of Sunday morning's Daylight Saving Time change.
