11-Year-Old TN Boy & Smoke Alarm Save Family from Home Fire
A smoke alarm and the quick action of an 11-year-old boy in Memphis saved the boy and his family early Tuesday morning.

This story hits home for Fire Prevention Month and this month's theme of keeping #LovedOnesSafe. Families should practice fire drills so they can safely escape a house fire in two minutes, and they should check smoke alarms monthly to ensure that they are working properly. Additionally, it's very important for kids to know how to prepare for and survive a fire. For more information on this, visit this link.
