"To promote this year’s message, the Maui Fire Department will be hosting a Fire Prevention show on Oct. 22 at the Keopuolani Park horseshoe pit from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m."

"Maui Fire Chief Jeffery Murray commented in a department announcement saying, 'In a fire, seconds count.  Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported at night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep. Home smoke alarms can alert occupants of a fire before it spreads, giving everyone enough time to get out,' said Murray."

"This year’s message is, 'Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm!'

Maui fire officials say the campaign is being held in conjunction with the non-profit National Fire Protection Association, 'to remind local residents about the importance of having working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.'"
