Firefighters host smoke detector blitz Saturday

Frankfort, Ind. – Frankfort firefighters will host another volunteer event to install smoke detectors and replace batteries in existing detectors for all those needing this protection with a Smoke Detector Blitz this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the south and east sections of town.

According to Fire Chief John Kirby, 2,900 alarms have been installed to date with community volunteers needed to help make Saturday’s event a success.

“We will meet at Grace Baptist Church at 900 South Maish Road at 8:30 a.m. Saturday to begin our blitz. Everyone can enjoy a delicious lunch at 11:30 a.m. provided by Clinton County American Red Cross chapter members and then from noon – 2:00 p.m. we will be back out in the south and east neighborhoods again.

“We encourage and welcome community members to join us and participate in this meaningful event to help keep their friends and neighbors safer with the installation of smoke alarms. It’s truly a life-saving step,” Kirby said.
