Charleston FD giving away smoke detectors


The Charleston Fire Department in Illinois is giving away 200 smoke detectors with a 10-year sealed battery.

The detectors will be available for low income households.

Through its Fire Prevention Grant Program, FM Global awarded the Charleston Fire Department $3,000 to be able to provide the smoke detection devices.

“At FM Global, we strongly believe the majority of property damage is preventable, not inevitable,” said Michael Spaziani, assistant vice president – manager of the fire prevention grant program. “Far too often, inadequate budgets prevent those organizations working to prevent fire from being as proactive as they would like to be. With additional financial support, grant recipients are actively helping to improve property risk in the communities they serve.”
