Home Safety Equipment
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, safety railings, access ramps, and other home safety equipment are essential for a family’s safety, and there are many elderly people and low-income families in need. The First Responders Foundation partners with local fire departments to install these.
Detectors, for example, are essential for your family’s safety – but not every home is equipped with these life-saving devices. Even if they are, the batteries may be missing or dead. Other homes may have a smoke detector but not a carbon monoxide detector, which is the only way to be alerted if the odorless, invisible, and lethal gas is seeping into an unventilated home.
14 people in Nebraska died from fires in 2016 alone, including a family of 6 with young children.
The First Responders Foundation partners with area fire departments to install free and long-lasting smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. In 2016, we installed 1,218 detectors and replaced 37 batteries.
Your donation helps prevent tragedies, reduce tax dollars through proactive prevention, and keep children, families, and the elderly safe in their homes. You can help improve quality of life for lower income and elderly in their homes while reducing cost to taxpayers.
