The Verdunville Fire Department has been making use of a grant which allows them to distribute 300 smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
Verdunville fire chief Windell Hunter explained, “It has taken a lot of long hours to get this grant for our community.”
The group has been working to distribute the alarms since Saturday Jan. 16 and will continue to do so (weather permitting) Jan. 17 and 18.
Hunter explained they started at Mathis Addition Saturday and began working their way through the communities they serve.
While supplies last, each residence can receive one alarm.
Hunter added, “Let’s work together to save lives — one house at a time.”
