Duluth, GA | October 17, 2014 -- Craig Morgan, one of country music’s best-loved artists, continues to promote a national campaign with Kidde Fire Safety, a leading manufacturer of residential fire safety products. Kidde will donated 250 of its new Worry-Free smoke alarms to the Safe Kids Gwinnett Coalition, whose lead agency is Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
The donation comes on the heels of Fire Prevention Week whose theme was “Working Smoke Alarms Saves Lives.” The organizations are collaborating to install the 10-year sealed-in battery smoke alarms in hopes of preventing tragic fires that can cause serious injury or death to children and other residents of Gwinnett County. Kidde’s "Be a Safety Hero" initiative empowers everyone to follow five simple steps to fire safety.
