JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The Jamestown Fire Department has received a $2,000 dollar donation to purchase smoke detectors for the agency’s Fire Prevention Outreach Program.
The donation was given to city hall by Rand Machine Products, a custom/contract manufacturing company located at 2072 Allen Street Extension in Falconer, after holding a fundraiser in the summer.
Jamestown Fire Chief Matthew Coon is grateful of the generous donation from the manufacturing company, stating the importance that smoke alarms give to every household.
“We felt as a department that the best use of those funds would be to enhance our community outreach program with the smoke detectors,“ explained Chief Coon. “It’s a very popular program, and having additional smoke detectors made available to members of the public through our program was really our ultimate goal. As a chief, I’m always very interested to have people have smoke detectors in their home, and we certainly are all about the public safety, and will even assist in the installation of those if the need exists.”
Anyone that would like to take part in the Outreach Program is urged to contact the Jamestown Fire Department Fire Chief Office.
The manufacturing company had also previously made a donation towards city police officers.
