The Home Depot is partnering with [Kidde | http://www.kidde.com/] and NFPA to donate 2,500 Kidde battery-operated smoke alarms powered by 10-year Lithium Ion batteries to many fire departments throughout the country. 


The donations are part of a nationwide giveaway of $1 million worth of smoke alarms, or 50,000 units, and the “Be a Hero, Save a Hero” initiative taking place at Home Depot stores across the country that same day (see below for the full list of participating stores). Through the initiative, Kidde will make donations to two non-profit organizations when customers log on to [www.alarmpledge.com | http://www.alarmpledge.com/] and promise to ensure their home has enough up-to-date and working smoke alarms. The pledge also encourages families to create and practice a home fire escape plan.


Fire safety is extremely important during this time of year as there is an increased risk of fire due to holiday decorating. According to the NFPA, between 2005 and 2009, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated annual average of 240 home fires that began with Christmas trees. 


 

 

By attending the free events at The Home Depot locations nationwide, parents can learn more about home safety and what products (and how many!) they need to keep their family safe.&#0160;Proper knowledge and preparation can make all the difference in the event of a fire!</p>
