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 28th year, is sponsored by WPVI Television in Philadelphia along with Kidde, The Home Depot, Guardian Protection, and local tri-state Toyota dealers. Over the years the program has given approximately half a million smoke detectors to fire departments from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The event was held on Tuesday, January 28th at the Philadelphia Fire Academy in Northeast Philadelphia. 6ABC President and General Manager Bernie Prazenica and 6ABC news anchor Tamala Edwards spoke to the many attendees at the event. Lieutenant Ferrell and Firefighter Anderson represented the department for the presentation ceremony and luncheon. After the ceremony, the department was given 48 Kidde Smoke Detectors with 10 year batteries. These detectors will be available, free of charge, to residents of Willingboro.

In conjunction with this program, the following event is being held this Saturday, February 1st:
