JAMESTOWN – A renewed push to hand out free smoke detectors in the Jamestown area is underway.
The Chautauqua Safety Village and Jamestown Fire Department are partnered as part of the initiative.
Those agencies received a $2,000 grant from Lake Shore Savings Bank to purchase smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Like years past, the two groups are going to distribute them to City of Jamestown and Chautauqua County residents.
Since the partnership began in December 2020, 138 smoke alarms and 16 CO detectors have been handed out to Jamestown residents specifically.
In addition to the free alarms, fire experts will also make sure residents know how to property use the devices.
To receive a free alarm, contact the Jamestown Fire Department at (716) 483-7597 or the Safety Village at (716) 338-0170.
