WOODSTOCK FIRE DEPARTMENT CONDUCTS SMOKE ALARM BLITZ IN SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY

 

January 10, 2018 -  Woodstock Fire Department, in partnership with Home Depot employees, will visit 67 homes today in The Cottages of Woodstock; a senior living community with residents 55 years of age and up.


This community outreach initiative, which is taking place from 9:00a.m. – approximately 12:00p.m. today, “is a proactive approach to ensuring residents have working smoke alarms as well as bring awareness to the importance of properly working smoke alarms” says Fire Sergeant George Williams.  “Some of these citizens don’t have younger family members nearby and have no way to exchange old or out dated smoke alarms. So, we go in and change batteries and replace smoke alarms where needed” Sgt. Williams added.

 

Woodstock Fire Department is committed to the safety of the citizens and businesses of Woodstock.  Through a partnership with Home Depot located on Highway 92 and the Home Depot located on Sixes Road, Smoke Alarm Blitz events take place within the community multiple times a year.


For more information on smoke alarm safety and fire prevention, please contact Woodstock Fire Department at 770-926-2302.
