WHEREAS, the members of the Kansas City Fire Department work to prevent fires and risk their lives to protect the property and lives of all our citizens; and

 

WHEREAS, it is the duty and responsibility of all our citizens, be it man, woman, or child, to use caution and care in the maintenance of property, and to maintain a working smoke detector so as to prevent the loss of life, suffering, and the destruction of irreplaceable property, and
