Around 400 college students went around Lincoln Sunday installing fire alarms.
The students were assisting the Lincoln Fire and Rescue with the smoke alarm rally.
The new smoke alarms have dual sensing which detect both fast, flaming fires and smoky, smoldering fires.
The smoke alarms also have batteries that last up to ten years.
The purpose of the program is to help reduce the amount of fire related deaths and injuries in Lincoln by increasing and improving smoke alarms in residences.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue Captain Jeff Hatcher said, "The area that we are putting up smoke alarms runs from K to D street, and then from 16th to Capital Parkway. So basically the area between Lincoln High and the State Capitol."
The smoke alarms used for this program were purchased with funding from the federal emergency management agency. The goal on Sunday was to install 1,000 new smoke alarms.
