*On Installation goals with individual fire departments will have to be flexible, target 60 Home Visits from April 8 – May 8,… 2 per day on average (but not limited to).  That extrapolates to 8 FD installing (1 or 2 on average) alarms at 60 home…480 – 960 alarms. Aiming high for a buffer.  That’s also 480 educational events toward the 556 goals,  leaving just 76 Homes Made Safer for our other channels (if needed).
