Fire chiefs sound the alarm for safety with Super Bowl challenge

By Lisa Braxton

The Charlotte, North Carolina, and Denver, Colorado, fire chiefs are in a friendly Super Bowl challenge that could save lives.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the chief of the winning team’s city will receive 200 Kidde Worry-Free 10-year sealed battery smoke-carbon monoxide alarms to install in homes in need throughout the city.

The losing city’s chief will receive 50 of the same alarms and must install them while wearing the other team’s jersey.

“I’m happy to participate in a friendly challenge where both Charlotte and Denver residents are the big winners,” Charlotte Fire Chief Jon Hannan said. “I’m also confident our Carolina Panthers will bring home the trophy, and Chief (Eric) Tade will look great wearing our blue and black.”

Departments considering conducting smoke alarm public awareness campaigns and installations can refer to NFPA’s Planning & Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program for guidance. NFPA’s community toolkits on smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms provide resources to help motivate residents to install and maintain alarms.
