South Florida is about to get a lot safer. Kidde recently hosted an Operation Save A Life event at Carrier’s world headquarters and announced a donation of 8,000 smoke alarms and 2,000 carbon monoxide (CO) alarms to local fire departments and deserving people within the community.
Members of surrounding area fire departments attended the event to help promote the importance of fire and carbon monoxide safety and fundamental practices for installing, replacing and maintaining alarms. Carrier employees also attended the event to hear guest speakers share tips about the steps they can take to improve fire safety within their own home.
Since 2002, Kidde has donated over 1.5 million smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to fire departments through the Operation Save A Life program.
The community program is a partnership with Kidde, ABC-TV, The Home Depot and local fire services, and raises awareness of fire and carbon monoxide safety in cities across the U.S. Much of its focus is on underserved communities with homes of low income, elderly and resource-challenged residents. This ceremony marks the third Operation Save A Life event held in Palm Beach County.
