International Code Council’s Sound the Alarm

This program was developed by the International Code Council in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council through an FY2009 Fire Prevention and Safety grant from the US Department of Homeland Security/FEMA.  It focused on rural communities in states with the highest per capita fire fatality rates. The program provides guidance on home visits, including a basic home safety inspection and smoke alarm installation and replacement. It emphasizes that correct addresses should be properly displayed and visible for first responders.

ProLiteracy Literacy-Friendly Smoke Alarm Illustrations for Home Visits

With support from Vision 20/20 and the Washington State Fire Marshals Association, ProLiteracy has created guidance and tools to use with residents who may not read well or do not yet understand English well. The illustrations come in three formats: full color, black and white gray scale, and black line drawings. The content is the same for each. There is very little text.  The Tip Sheet provides detailed information on how to present key information about smoke alarms and fire safety. You have permission from ProLiteracy to download and print the illustrations to use when doing home visits to install smoke alarms, do safety checks, or provide safety education.
