WPVI will distribute 10,000 Kidde smoke alarms to local families in need. Since 1992, with the help of local fire companies, the station has distributed hundreds of thousands of smoke alarms to residents throughout the Philadelphia area.
Now, imagine how many lives could be saved when hundreds of thousands of homes are armed with smoke detectors?
WPVI, ABC’s Philadelphia O&O, has undoubtedly saved lives in its 27-year campaign on fire prevention, Operation 6abc: Save a Life.
This year, Operation 6abc: Save a Life will distribute 10,000 Kidde smoke alarms, each with a 10-year sealed-in battery, to local families in need.
Since 1992, through local fire companies, WPVI’s campaign has distributed hundreds of thousands of smoke alarms to people throughout the Philadelphia area.
Operation 6abc: Save a Life is also a multimedia campaign that offers information and guidance on home fire safety.
The awareness campaign comes to life at the Operation 6abc: Save a Life webpage.
The website and 6abc’s social platforms offer fire safety and prevention tips, and lists local fire departments people can contact if they’re in need of a smoke alarm.
Kidde has donated smoke alarms annually through Operation 6abc: Save a Life for 18 years.
On Saturday, Feb. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Kidde and select Home Depot locations will host Save a Life Saturday to help families learn more about home fire safety. For a list of participating locations, visit www.6abc.com/firesafety.
