MySafe:LA is partnering with the Los Angeles City Fire Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department, smoke alarm manufacturer Kidde, ABC 7 News, and The Home Depot for an extensive effort to promote fire safety in the County and City of Los Angeles. The concept was created by Kidde, and is called “Operation Save a Life.”
Speaking at a press event at Fire Station 64 in South Los Angeles, MySafe:LA Commander noted that, “our installation teams find homes without smoke alarms, homes with older non-functional smoke alarms, and homes with alarms that have literally been yanked out of the ceiling. Our job is to make hundreds of homes safer from fire – working smoke alarms double your chances of safety escaping a home fire.”
Kidde, the national manufacturer of smoke alarms, CO detectors, and other safety devices has donated $100,000 in smoke alarms and CO detectors – to be evenly split between the LAFD and LAcoFD. MySafe:LA will install all of the alarms on behalf of both agencies.
