News 8 is proud to partner once again in 2013 with Kidde The Home Depot and The Burn Center and the Trauma Center at Bridgeport Hospital to present Operation Save A Life ; a life-saving program designed to increase public awareness of fire and Carbon Monoxide (CO) dangers.
One of the cornerstones of Operation Save A Life is the distribution of smoke alarms to Connecticut families in need; particularly low income, elderly, and other residents at risk in their respective communities. Kidde will again donate smoke alarms and CO alarms that will be distributed by Fire Departments throughout Connecticut.
In addition to the distribution of smoke alarms, News 8 has committed to fire safety education and CO awareness by airing Operation Save A Life educational vignettes. The vignettes were produced with help from the New Haven Fire Department and begin airing on September 17th.
The Home Depot will also be sharing valuable safety tips at their Save a Life Saturday Event on October 5th from 9-3pm at the following participating stores:
Norwalk, 600 Connecticut Ave
Fairfield, 541 Kings Hwy Cut-Off
Manchester, 80 Buckland Hills Dr.
West Hartford, 503 New Park Ave.
Waterbury, Bank St.
