BATON ROUGE – News 2 is working with the State Fire Marshal’s Office, Kidde and Home Depot to put smoke alarms in every home in Louisiana.
Fire chiefs from all over the state kicked off “Operation Save A Life” today in Baton Rouge, encouraging everyone to take advantage of the program to put working smoke alarms in their residences.
Alarms made by Kidde will be available for purchase at area Home Depots for around $20 each, and people who can’t afford new alarms can get a grant to help pay for them. The grants will be in limited supply, and can be applied for at Home Depot, the State Fire Marshal’s Office in Baton Rouge, or local fire departments.
Beginning Dec. 18 firefighters will also be answering questions about the program at Baton Rouge-area Home Depot stores and demonstrating how to install smoke alarms.
