Maryland and Delaware State Fire Marshal's Team With DP&L to Provide Smoke Alarms to Local Fire Department's for Distribution!
Thursday, October 3, 2019

WICOMICO COUNTY, October 2, 2019 - Delmarva Power is recognizing Fire Prevention Week (October 7-13) by donating 2,900 smoke alarms to local communities through its partners at the Delaware State and Maryland State Fire Marshals’ Offices, along with 200 carbon monoxide detectors to the Wilmington Fire Department. This is the 20th year Delmarva Power has donated these important life-saving devices as part of its efforts to join local emergency services personnel to help keep its customers and communities safe.

Since 2000, Delmarva Power has worked with local emergency service providers to donate more than 33,000 smoke alarms to communities across Delaware and Maryland. Delmarva Power maintains a close partnership with local fire departments and other first responders, who work alongside Delmarva Power employees during storms and other emergencies. In addition to the annual smoke alarm donation, the company’s Emergency Services Partnership Program helps coordinate trainings, share best practices, and sponsor other charitable giving and volunteer activities with area emergency response teams throughout the year.

Sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and established in 1925, Fire Prevention Week is an opportunity to bring awareness to the risks of fire and provide educational resources to promote fire safety practices. A few important tips from the NFPA on smoke alarm safety include:

• Install smoke alarms in and outside of every bedroom of your home.
• Test all smoke alarms at least once per month. Press the “test” button to ensure the alarm is working properly.
• Replace all expired smoke alarms.
