New York – Join host Bill Ritter for Operation 7: Save a Life, the 25th annual Emmy Award-winning WABC-TV special, on Saturday, January 21 at 7 p.m.
The more prepared you are, the better your chances of survival.
Learn about the causes of New York City’s fastest growing fires. It’s a lithium-ion battery fire from an e-mobility device. There will be more battery fires in 2022 than in the last three years combined. With this new type of fire, you’ll learn new tips for prevention that everyone should know.
Plus, we meet the new Fire Commissioner at FDNY – making history as the first woman in the workplace…and who made it her mission to make sure she wasn’t the last .
We look at the psychological toll firefighters take on people and look at programs that help firefighters process the trauma of seeing so many tragedies. Work with volunteers to see how they are helping disaster victims.
Also a very rare and daring rescue by firefighters – a woman is found hanging outside her burning 20th floor apartment.
Plus, fly into the future of firefighting! How FDNY is using drones to save lives.
We hope you’ll join us for Operation 7: Save a Life on Saturday, January 21st at 7 PM.
