The Philadelphia Fire Department and Drexel University announce the release of the new “Philadelphia Fire Department Safety App” on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 1:00 pm. on Drexel University Campus, 33rd and Race Streets. For smart phone users, the application is optimized for IOS and will run on Android platforms, giving users instant access to fire prevention and safety information.
The Dinner Dance is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Citizens for Fire Prevention Committee, raising funds that provide smoke alarms in high risk communities and fire and life safety education.
Your contribution will go towards fire prevention education, the purchase and installation of ten-year lithium powered smoke alarms, making firefighting safer, and less than 5% towards administration and fundraising. Philadelphia Fire Department (PFD) salaries are paid by the City and the PFD does the smoke alarm installations and education.
