Today, Marty McCarthy and Phil Segneri, partners – Fire Engine Pizza Co., presented RYASAP and the City of Bridgeport with a check in support of theRYASAP’s Safe Asleep program.  The  program receives 25-40 calls per day and installs approximately 4,000 free smoke alarms in Bridgeport’s single and multi-family homes and apartments each year, saving lives every day.  Prior to the Safe Asleep program, which began in 2005, Bridgeport had one of the highest incidents of fire related deaths in the United States. With a large population of children, families, seniors and persons with disabilities living in poverty, many households have limited resources to maintain their homes, let alone purchase and install smoke alarms and batteries.
