The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) Safe House Campaign, sponsored by the NACHI Foundation, was kicked off on March 20, 2004 with the donation of over $1000 worth of smoke alarms for the hearing impaired. The alarms, retailing at over $150 each, were given to needy families.
The Campaign has just released a thirty second Public Service Announcement encouraging people to check the batteries in their smoke alarms after changing the time on Sunday, April4, 2004. According to the United States Fire Administration ( a division of FEMA), over half of all fire deaths were in homes with no working alarm. Add to that the fact that over 80% of all deaths in the home are from fire and the importance of this drive is obvious.
The NACHI Safe House Campaign will include several future initiatives to be announced shortly that focus on educating the American public on safety in the home. The campaign will focus on topics from fire safety to poisoning.
