Kidde donates 3,000 smoke detectors to safe community project

Mebane, NC

As part of the Operation Save a Life programme, Kidde will donate 3,000 smoke alarms with 10-year sealed-in batteries and 500 carbon monoxide alarms to Palm Beach County area fire departments, which will distribute and install the alarms in homes throughout the community.

With this action Kidde is expanding its public service campaign, Operation Save A Life, to Palm Beach County, Florida – the future home of the new UTC Center for Intelligent Buildings and world headquarters for UTC Climate, Controls & Security, of which Kidde is a part. Designed to educate consumers on the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide (CO), Operation Save A Life delivers smoke and CO alarms to at-risk residents in the community. Operation Save A Life is sponsored by Kidde, WPBF 25, local fire departments and The Home Depot.  

Since 2002, Kidde has donated more than 1.3 million alarms through Operation Save A Life to fire departments across the country.

“Kidde is a world leader in the fire safety products industry,” says Sharon Cooksey, communications manager, Kidde. “And we recognise that with leadership comes a responsibility to the communities we serve. That’s why we actively give back through charitable programmes like Operation Save A Life.”

The same Kidde solutions donated today to the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue will also be on display within the UTC Center for Intelligent Buildings.

“Our sealed-in batteries eliminate the need for battery replacement and simplify protection,” adds Cooksey. “Together, we will help save even more lives this year in Palm Beach County and in the years to come.”
