Worry-Free Smoke Alarms provided by Kidde in exchange for promotional consideration.
Duluth, GA | October 17, 2014 -- Craig Morgan, one of country music’s best-loved artists, continues to promote a national campaign with Kidde Fire Safety, a leading manufacturer of residential fire safety products. Kidde will donated 250 of its new Worry-Free smoke alarms to the Safe Kids Gwinnett Coalition, whose lead agency is Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
The donation comes on the heels of Fire Prevention Week whose theme was “Working Smoke Alarms Saves Lives.” The organizations are collaborating to install the 10-year sealed-in battery smoke alarms in hopes of preventing tragic fires that can cause serious injury or death to children and other residents of Gwinnett County. Kidde’s "Be a Safety Hero" initiative empowers everyone to follow five simple steps to fire safety.
DID YOU KNOW
Approximately 3,000 people die in U.S. home fires each year. Most fatal fires happen in homes with either no alarms or non-working alarms. The main reason smoke alarms don’t work is dead or missing batteries. Working smoke alarms benefit both homeowners and firefighters alike; residents are more likely to escape before succumbing to smoke inhalation and firefighters can more safely fight the fire knowing the occupants are out of the building.
