Country singer donates smoke alarms to BFD

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A country singer set to perform Thursday night at the University at Buffalo donated smoke alarms to the Buffalo Fire Department before he took the stage.

Craig Morgan will be performing alongside Cassadee Pope and Parmalee at the UB Center for the Arts as part of WYRK’s EnergyMark Acoustic Concert Thursday night. But before he got to the venue, Morgan stopped by Engine 23 on Bailey Avenue around 1:30 p.m. to donate 250 smoke alarms to the Buffalo Fire Department, which will then install the devices in at-risk homes throughout the Queen City.

“These guys will talk to people about how a smoke alarm will save your life. But what they fail to mention, because of the humility of the people that are standing behind me, is it could save their life as well,” Morgan said.

The country singer is a former first responder, himself. The smoke alarms he donated are called “Worry Free” and have a battery that lasts for 10 years.

Tickets to Thursday night’s concert are sold out. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
