The Charlotte and Denver fire chiefs are in a friendly Super Bowl challenge that could save lives.

The chief of the winning team’s city will receive 200 Kidde Worry-Free 10-year sealed battery smoke-carbon monoxide alarms to install in homes in need throughout the city.

The losing city’s chief will receive 50 of the same alarms and must install them while wearing the other team’s jersey.

“I’m happy to participate in a friendly challenge where both Charlotte and Denver residents are the big winners,” Charlotte Fire Chief Jon Hannan said. “I’m also confident our Carolina Panthers will bring home the trophy, and Chief (Eric) Tade will look great wearing our blue and black.”
