LOWER PROVIDENCE TOWNSHIP (January 16, 2018) – Lower Providence Township Volunteer Fire Company and the Lower Providence Township Fire Marshal’s Office, along with over 100 other fire departments in the tri-state area, are participating in the 26th annual Operation 6abc Save-a-Life fire safety and CO awareness campaign.

The Township’s Fire Chief James Alexander and Fire Marshal Charles A. DeFrangesco received an allotment of Kidde smoke detectors as the campaign kicked off at the Philadelphia Fire Academy on January 15, 2018.

“The detectors are distributed during residential fire events in the Township” said DeFrangesco. “When we find a home with a non-working unit or no detectors, we will install a detector before leaving.”

Residents should have a smoke detector on every level of the home, inside each bedroom, and in the hallway outside the bedrooms. There should be a minimum of one carbon dioxide detector in the hallway outside the bedrooms.

If you live in Lower Providence Township and are in need of a smoke detector, please contact the Fire Marshal at 610-635-3546.
