Country singer Craig Morgan has always been a fan of giving back to causes close to his heart. He has recently partnered with Kidde Fire Safety to distribute Kidde Worry-Free smoke alarms throughout Morgan’s The Journey Tour.
Kidde will donate 5,000 smoke alarms – a $125,000 value – to fire departments along the tour’s stops. The alarms will be installed in homes in need throughout the communities. The first batch of alarms was donated to Morgan’s hometown fire department in Dickinson, TN on Feb. 11 with the help of the Tennessee State Division of Fire Prevention and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Morgan, a spokesperson for Kidde, is thrilled to speak out for such an important cause and explains, “As a former first responder, I’ve seen the damage home fires can cause. Many home fire deaths are preventable, and I want to do what I can to help keep families safe”
Chris Rovenstine, vice president sales and marketing at Kidde, is just as excited to work with Morgan, saying, “Kidde’s mission is to help save lives, and we are pleased to work with Craig on this campaign. Dead or missing batteries are the main reasons smoke alarms don’t sound in a fire. By providing sealed-battery smoke alarms to local fire departments, we can help protect families who otherwise may not be able to replace an outdated alarm.”
In addition to Morgan’s hometown of Dickinson, fire departments in Buffalo, Columbus, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Austin, Phoenix, and San Diego will also received Kidde smoke alarms. More departments will be added throughout the tour.
