Where there's smoke, there's smoke detectors. At least, that's the goal.

Few people think about fires until they experience one themselves. But more people report fires than you probably think: approximately one in 338 households each year. That's more than 360,000 homes.

What's more: three out of five home fire deaths happen in homes without working smoke alarms.*

The Home Depot is helping to prevent that. Through Operation Save a Life, The Home Depot partners with Kidde and local fire departments to distribute thousands of smoke and carbon dioxide alarms in communities across the country each year. Since 2002, Operation Save a Life has provided more than 1.36 million smoke alarms in 15 communities.

'A working smoke alarm almost doubles your chance of escaping a fire without injury or death,' said Sharon Cooksey, marketing communications manager for Kidde. 'Our mission is to save and protect. Installing a smoke alarm is the first step in doing that.'
