LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) -

A new safety effort by a high school teen is off to a good start, just one week after the program was launched.

Blake Jackson accepted a donation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors from the Livingston Parish District 5 Fire Department on Wednesday.

The firefighters donated 100 detectors to "Project S.A.F.E."

The 18-year-old came up with the idea after a mother and daughter died in a tragic fire in February.

His goal is to hand out as many smoke and carbon monoxide as possible to elementary schools.

If you'd like to donate to Project S.A.F.E., you can send a check to: Holden School at 30120 LA 441, Holden, Louisiana, or call (225) 567-9367 for more information.
