BP Donates Smoke Detectors

Warren Fire Grant

BP donated $50,000 to the Warren Fire Department so they can distribute smoke detectors to people without them for free.

The company donated the money to the department’s Save a Life Smoke Initiative.

The program was developed after several fatal fires during the last three years.

Each home will receive a $45 contribution through the program for three tamper-resistant alarms with batteries designed to last up to 10 years.

“This is one of the important contributions we are proud to make on behalf of BP,” said Curtis Thomas, BP’s Ohio Director Government and Public Affairs.
