      "Smoke Detectors Save Lives!"
      How about Working Smoke Detectors Save Lives?

      To add...

      Do you have a family meeting place?
      Do you know who to call? (My town has a dispatcher on 24-7 -- calling 911 gets you to the County dispatch, who then has to call us -- an extra step, calling our 7 digit number is direct to the firehouse.)
      Put a lid on grease fires.
