Is it time to check your smoke alarms?


(WTNH)– Operation Save A Life is a partnership between Kidde, WTNH,and The Home Depot. Operation Save A Life is a program in which Kidde has donated more than 1.2 million smoke and CO alarms to fire departments throughout the nation since Since 2002.

Kidde is excited to help once again bring Operation Save a Life to New Haven, CT and to donate 5,000 of their smoke alarms with sealed, 10-year batteries to the New Haven Fire Department and 1,000 carbon monoxide alarms.

They are hoping that the overall awareness of this program will inspire families to think about their safety, to install smoke and CO alarms throughout their homes, and to replace smoke alarms that are a decade old.

Kidde believes the most important thing is knowing that these alarms are going into the homes of people that may not have the means to otherwise be protected.
