Operation Save a Life is an activation of Kidde’s Cause For Alarm initiative. It is a Kidde-sponsored public service campaign designed to educate consumers on the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning by equipping them with tools and information to help prevent the next tragedy. 

Kidde is committed to providing fire safety education and designing innovative products because we want everyone to have safe and healthy homes.

For more than 19 years, Operation Save a Life has been visiting cities across the U.S. and supporting these cities through alarm donations, fire education, community events, as well as supporting firefighters. OSAL Philadelphia and New York City are the longest running programs in conjunction with ABC television.

Through Operation Save a Life, Kidde has already donated more than 1.5 million smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to fire departments, in addition to providing fire safety educational resources and products to vulnerable communities and those living in low-income housing.

Our goal through Operation Save a Life is to help save more lives this year and in the years to come.
