PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Statistics show that working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a house fire by 50-percent.

Now, through a program funded by the state Department of Health, the Allegheny County Health Department is giving smoke alarms to owners of homes with no smoke alarms or alarms that are more than 10 years old – considered too old to be reliable.

A maximum of two battery-operated smoke alarms will be provided to an owner-occupied home. Click HERE for more info.
