Smoke Alarm Blitz Community Involvement Day postponed to April 23

The Fire Department and Clinton County Red Cross’ Smoke Alarm Blitz Community Involvement Day has been postponed to Saturday, April 23 due to this Saturday’s forecasted cold weather.

Please note the date change on your calendars and plan to join firefighters and Red Cross volunteers April 23 as they work to install 1,000 smoke alarms in the north and east sections of the City (North Jackson Street to East Walnut Street).

The rescheduled date will begin at 9:00 a.m. with a 45-minute training video for all the teams who will go door-to-door so everyone can feel comfortable knowing how to install the alarms. From 10:00 a.m. – noon teams will blitz the neighborhood with visits to install alarms where needed.

The Clinton County Red Cross chapter will provide lunch for the teams at noon and then from 12:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. the group will be back out in north and east neighborhoods again.

Training and lunch will be held at Harmony Baptist Church at 1635 Washington Avenue.

No need to RSVP. Simply show up and organizers will take it from there!
