One of the cornerstones of
Operation Save A Lifeis the distribution of smoke alarms
to Connecticut families in need; particularly low income, elderly, and
other residents at risk in their respective communities. Kidde will
again donate smoke alarms and CO alarms that will
be distributed by Fire Departments throughout Connecticut.
donation of smoke and CO alarms with 10 year batteries is huge in terms
of peace of mind for those fire departments installing them
for the public. “I have been involved in smoke alarm programs since the
early 1990’s. Never has the fire
services been able to walk away as
confident as we can today with the 10 year alarms knowing that the
batteries cannot be removed and those who receive
the alarms will be protected for many years to come”. Chief Rob Ross,
South Fire District, Middletown. South Fire District received 60 CO and
90 smoke alarms for their alarm installation program. Seniors or those
who are physically or finically challenged
should contact the station to receive the alarms at 860-347-6661
In addition to the distribution of smoke alarms, News 8 has committed to fire safety education and CO awareness by airing
Operation Save A Life educational vignettes. The vignettes were produced with help from the New Haven Fire Department and begin airing on September 17th.
