A new initiative funded by FEMA is aiming to save lives in Baltimore County. 

On Friday County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger announced a major fire and carbon monoxide initiative. The program will provide smoke and CO detectors as well as safety education to residents, with a focus on higher-risk neighborhoods. 

FEMA is providing $589,000 so fire station crews can canvass neighborhoods to offer fire safety education and free smoke/CO detectors.
