Make smoke alarms work for your safety 

Smoke alarms are the residential fire safety success story of the past quarter century. Smoke alarm technology has been around since the 1960s. But the single-station, battery-powered smoke alarm we know today became available to consumers in the 1970s, and since then, the home fire death rate has been reduced by half. Most states have laws requiring them in residential dwellings.

Important: Working smoke alarms are essential in every household. It is necessary to practice home fire drillsto be certain everyone is familiar with the smoke alarm signal, and to determine if there are any obstacles to a quick and safe evacuation (including the inability for some to awaken to the smoke alarm signal).

NDDH VIAL OF LIFE PROGRAM

   Yes, your refrigerator can save your life...when your important medical information is clearly displayed on the front door of it.

   The VIAL OF LIFE program is in use in thousands of communities throughout the United States and has been credited with saving countless lives.

   Simply put, the VIAL OF LIFE is a way to have important life-saving information available for Emergency Medical Responders in the event that you are injured or take ill at home and are unable to communicate.

 A highly visible decal on your front door or window informs

 responders that you are a VIAL OF LIFE participant and directs them to the refrigerator door for your medical documents.  

    Take this important step to prepare yourself for an emergency.

   VIAL OF LIFE documents can be your voice in the event that you are unresponsive.

    The VIAL OF LIFE program is just another way that NDDH helps to promote, protect, and improve your health.
