NFPA, Partners Aiding Volunteer Departments

A new support initiative encourages civilians to learn how they can assist their local departments. Kidde will donate 1,000 smoke alarms to selected fire departments along country music star Craig Morgan's 2016 tour.

Country Music star Craig Morgan, a former first responder, is joining NFPA, Kidde Fire Safety, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, country star Kix Brooks, and others to call for support for the nation's volunteer fire departments. There are more than 30,000 fire departments in the United States, 85 percent of which are staffed solely or mainly by volunteer firefighters, and they protect more than 60 percent of Americans.

This support initiative encourages civilians to learn how they can assist their local departments. Kidde will donate 1,000 smoke alarms to selected fire departments along Morgan's 2016 tour; they are Worry-Free alarms containing a sealed-in lithium battery that provides nonstop power for 10 years.

"Living in Dickson County, Tennessee, I see every day how committed these men and women are to their communities. As a former first responder, I want to continue to do what I can to help keep families safe. That means making sure our volunteer fire departments have the support they need," Morgan said.

NFPA and IAFC will host open houses at volunteer fire departments along Morgan's tour, and Firehouse will host an online program that enables the public to vote for nominated volunteers. The winning volunteers' departments will receive training materials, funding, and Kidde smoke alarms for community installation programs. To learn more, visit
