WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Keep Me In, I’ll Get You Out campaign kicked off Wednesday morning with firefighters going door to door checking people’s smoke detectors.

As News 18 reported Tuesday, the West Lafayette Fire Department launched a new campaign to make sure smoke detectors are working in student rentals. Wednesday, firefighters checked devices and replaced the batteries if needed.

Two Purdue students died in fires last school year prompting the city to remind people that smoke detectors save lives. Purdue student Aneesh Samudrala said he is happy to know the city is helping keep people safe.

“It feels great. Just knowing that the local fire department is making sure that no one is doing anything wrong and got your safety as their number one priority,” Samudrala said.

Along with discussing fire safety, firefighters also installed smoke detectors free of charge.
