TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Next time you drive past the Terre Haute Fire Station at 13th and Chase Streets, you may notice a new LED digital sign.
The sign was dedicated on Tuesday at station 3 in an effort by the fire department’s “Protect the Precious” campaign. The campaign started following a tragic house fire in 2011 that claimed three lives.
There were no working smoke detectors in the home, and since then, the campaign’s mission has been to provide free smoke detectors to people in the Terre Haute area.
And signs like the one unveiled on Wednesday help share important information.
“We have 3 signs at 3 of our fire stations: station 3, station 5, and station 7. What these signs do, they have fire prevention sayings on them as well as the sponsors that have made all of this possible,” said Diana Luther, President of Protect the Precious.
Luther said the goal is to install these signs at all eight Terre Haute fire stations.
