Kidde is proud to announce its participation in the inaugural San Francisco Fire Department’s Fire Prevention and Public Education event at the Brava Theater in downtown San Francisco. To show its commitment to this worthy cause, Kidde donated 250 free smoke alarms to community members in the audience. Kidde, a leading manufacturer of residential fire safety products, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The goal of the newly-formed Fire Prevention and Education team of the San Francisco Fire Department is to promote fire safety through community outreach and education, something Kidde supports in communities across the country.
“Kidde is a world leader in the fire safety products industry,” says Sharon Cooksey, communications manager, Kidde. “And we recognize that with leadership comes a responsibility to the communities we serve. That’s why we actively give back through charitable programs and events like this one, which help to keep our communities safe.”
Today was the first event held by the Fire Prevention and Education team and included live, interactive fire extinguisher demonstrations and fire education focused on creating an escape plan in your home and workplace.
