MySafe:LA is working in collaboration with KABC Television, Kidde, the Los Angeles City Fire Department, the Los Angeles County Fire Department, and the Home Depot to implement the key objectives of “Operation Save a Life.” This program, developed and promoted by Kidde, is focused on getting smoke alarms and CO detectors into the homes of people who are less fortunate and/or unable to purchase these life saving devices on their own.
Kidde has donated a large quantity of smoke alarms and CO detectors to both the LAFD and the LAcoFD. MySafe:LA is the education and installation partner. Our uniformed and certified members install these smoke alarms at no cost – and teach families how to escape a fire safely, how to speak to a 911 “call taker,” and much more: We provide printed safety materials, practice “Get low and go” with kids in the home, and engage the family in knowing that fire safety requires their commitment to creating a plan and practicing it.
Remember: working smoke alarms can double your chances of safety escaping a home fire. Don’t become a statistic. Make certain your home has functional smoke alarms. If you need assistance, we’re here to help.
