Trumbull fire officials recently participated in Operation-Save-A-Life, a fire-prevention campaign held at the New Haven Regional Fire School in New Haven. The event was sponsored by WTNH News 8, Kidde, Home Depot, JP Maguire, and Everyday Heroes CT.
During the event employees from The Home Depot and WTNH-News 8 distributed 5,000 smoke detectors and 1,000 CO alarms to local fire departments for use in their community fire prevention programs. All of the smoke detectors feature 10-year batteries and all were donated by Kidde. Because the battery is sealed inside these 10-year sealed-battery smoke alarms, the hassle of low-battery chirps and battery replacement is eliminated for the life of the unit, said Nichols Fire Chief Andrew Kingsbury.
