The Salamanca Fire Department has been presented a Life Safety Achievement Award for 1998 by the Residential Fire Safety Institute.

The award recognizes local fire prevention activities that contributed to reducing the number of lives lost in residential fires.

The Salamanca Fire Department qualified for the award because it recorded no fire deaths in 1998.

Residential fires in the United States account for 20 percent of all fires and result in 80 percent of deaths, according to the institute.
