Do you have a smoke alarm?
Does it work?
Do you know someone who needs a smoke alarm?
Fire Chief Shane Felts told The Journal “We emphasize installing fire alarms all year long, however when Daylight Saving Time begins and ends there is extra emphasis on installing smoke alarm and changing the batteries on some older models.” That program is “Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries.” Felts explained that the newer model smoke detectors have a 10 year battery life.
Felts said, “We install the smoke detector. There is no charge for the detector or installation. We don’t just hand them out, we come and install them. If you live outside Red River Parish, call your local fire department.” The local number to call is 318-932-6676.
