|NB Fire Department to Hold Open House on Wednesday|
Posting Date: 10/06/2014
National Fire Prevention Week
October 5-11, 2014 is National Fire Prevention Week and our local Volunteer Firefighters are offering one Free smoke detector per family, in recognition of this. You need to visit the Open House on Wednesday, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, at the Fire Station to get yours.
Fire Chief Ted Francisco stated donations were received from North Baltimore area businesses to fund the purchase of these smoke detectors that will be given away for free. "They made it possible for our citizens to be better protected in their homes. We appreciate their donations."
He also said "We'll be cooking up some hotdogs and have some punch, and probably have some other fire safety materials available also."
Chief Francisco also shared information about a special FEMA grant that just became available, through collaboration with Safe Kids Toledo. It is being expanded into Wood County.
"This grant allows for the installation of FREE 10 year sealed lithium battery smoke alarms into mobile homes and single family homes ONLY. Unfortunately, it is not available for apartments. We do not ask for any proof of income during the process. There is no limit to the amount of smoke alarms that can be placed in a home. We are following the NFPA guidelines of 1 alarm in each sleeping area and living area," Francisco said.
Another stipulation of this grant requires that the local fire department come to your home and install them. The grant does not allow you to do the installation yourself.
Contact Chief Ted Francisco or the NBFD for more information.
