The Willingboro Fire Department was once again represented at the annual Operation 6 ABC Save a Life Fire Safety Campaign. The program, which is in its 26th year, is sponsored by WPVI Television in Philadelphia along with Kidde, The Home Depot, American Water Resources, and local tri-state Toyota dealers. This year's program distributed 10,000 detectors to 140 fire departments from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
The event was held on Tuesday, January 16th at the Philadelphia Fire Academy in Northeast Philadelphia. 6ABC President and General Manager Bernie Prazenica, and 6ABC weekday traffic and weather anchor Karen Rogers, spoke to the many attendees at the event. Deputy Chief Jamie Clark represented the department for the presentation ceremony and luncheon. After the ceremony, the department was given a supply of Kidde Smoke Detectors with 10 year batteries.
