Hispanic Radio Station Lobo 97.7 Interviews the Foundation On Our Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detector Program!

Omaha’s Hispanic radio station Lobo 97.7 recently found out about our combination carbon monoxide and smoke detector program and reached out for an interview. They not only think the program is valuable, but also want to spread awareness and keep their audience informed, particularly with the loss of two lives in the South Omaha boarding house near Christmas time of last year.

Watch Radio Lobo’s Yanira Garcia interview Kathi Burt, First Responders Foundation executive assistant, and Antonio Lara, OFD Captain, on the program and its benefits!

130 Families Sign-Up to Receive Free Detectors!

4Yesterday we were proud to participate in Omaha Police Department Southeast Precinct’s Christmas party at South High School. About 3,000 people showed up for Santa, fun, and treats, and a free toy was given to every child 10 years old and under!

The toys were donated in large part thanks to a fundraiser organized by Eric Perez and Sonido travieso de omaha, and the entire event is organized by OPD’s Ofelia Robles.

We were there to ask families to sign-up for our free carbon monoxide and smoke detector program to help keep them safe in their homes. All in all, 130 families signed up to receive the detectors, installed by the Omaha Fire Department free of charge! Request your free detector by calling the OFD at 402.444.3560.
