Sox push for fire safety in Chicago

CHICAGO During the event, ABC7 Chicago sports anchor Jim Rose urged those attending to change detector batteries Saturday night when they turn clocks back.

Fire officials attending the event created smoke to show that detectors do beep a safety alert.

The fire department gave away 200 detectors and batteries.

The White Sox also contributed $2,500 to the Salvation Army and provided treats for children.

The program also included a performance by the famed Jesse White Tumblers.
