More than 400 families in the Baton Rouge area signed-up for a tool that could save their lives.

The "Operation Save A Life" program kicked-off two weeks ago, to help people get a smoke-detector for their homes if they can't afford one.

The State Fire Marshal's Office says half of those requests have been turned into local fire departments, that have installed the devices in applicant's homes.

Several stores involved in the program also sold out of smoke detectors kick-off weekend.

The Fire Marshal's Office says it's still taking in applications for free smoke detectors.  Contact your local fire department, or the fire marshal for details on signing up.
