Country music fans have not only heard the message, they’ve taken the steps to protect themselves, loved ones and the firefighters in their communities from the risks of toxic smoke and fire. On November 6 in Nashville, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) recognized country artist and former EMT, Craig Morgan, country music legend, Kix Brooks and Kidde Fire Safety for their support of the Foundation’s Alarm Pledge. The pledge is part of the NFFF Be a Hero Save a Hero® fire safety education program.
“We want everyone to have properly working smoke alarms in their homes and an escape plan in the event of a fire”,” said Chief Ronald Siarnicki, executive director of the NFFF. “Thanks to Kidde Fire Safety, Kix Brooks and Craig Morgan, we’ve been able to reach a much broader audience with these valuable fire safety messages.”
Morgan has released a new public service announcement that encourages everyone to take the Alarm Pledge and commit to practicing fire safe habits. These include replacing all smoke alarms that are more than 10-years old with one that has a 10-year sealed-in battery and planning and practicing an escape.
“When firefighters arrive at a house fire to discover everyone is outside and safe, it helps protect them from harm. By making sure your family is prepared, you are being a hero by helping save our nation’s heroes, firefighters,” said Siarnicki.
The Foundation has updated the Be a Hero, Save a Hero® site, making it easier for everyone to find the information they need to stay safe. To learn more fire safety tips, watch the PSA and to sign the Alarm Pledge, go to www.alarmpledge.com. Remember: “Fire is Everyone’s Fight.”
