Inaugural PROJECT LIFE 5K Announced

» Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Activities

The Oklahoma City Fire Department is hosting the first Project Life 5K run on Saturday, October 5, at 9 a.m. at the Lake Hefner East Wharf (the restaurant area off of Britton Road). Registration for the 5K or the 1 mile fun run or walk is $25.00 per person.

All money raised in this inaugural event will go toward the fire department’s smoke alarm project. The Oklahoma City Fire Department provides smoke alarms free of charge to the public and will also assist with installation of the alarms if requested.

According to the programs organizers a properly working smoke alarm gives a resident a fifty percent better chance of survival should their home ever catch on fire. Most residential fires occur at night and most fatalities are from smoke inhalation.
