Division of Fire’s Smoke Alarm Initiative…It Works!

Henry Rosenbaum, Battalion Chief and Fire Marshal for the Division of Fire, noted Henrico firefighters were dispatched on Saturday afternoon to Osborne Turnpike to rescue a woman trapped inside her house, which was on fire.  The woman had been sleeping but was alerted by a working smoke detector and was able to relocate to another section of her house and call for help.  As a result of the Division of Fire’s Smoke Alarm Initiative, this woman’s life was saved.
