Kidde and ABC Television are proud to partner together on Operation Save A Life-- a public service campaign designed to educate consumers and raise awareness about the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. Since 2002, Kidde has donated more than 1,000,000 smoke alarms to fire departments in select cities for installation in low-income housing as part of this program.
In addition, each ABC-affiliate station listed below creates safety vignettes that air during the campaign. Our hope is that these educational messages combined with Kidde product donations and informative product displays in retail stores across the country, will help save lives.
