SALSA: Save a Life Smoke Alarm Program

Please note: The SALSA Program has a new dedicated phone number: (330) 841-1363.


SALSA is a plan established by the Warren City firefighters union to prevent the tragic loss of lives in fires.


Most victims die from smoke or toxic gases and not from burns, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, and more than one-third of home fire deaths occur in homes without smoke alarms. The most at-risk populations are children five and under, and adults 65 and older.


Notification of a potential tragedy in a timely manner would help prevent loss of life and property. To that end, SALSA targets low-income homes with children five and under and adults aged 65 and older, as well as low-income residents with disabilities. Volunteers from collaborating non-profit agencies will properly install the smoke alarms in the homes.
