FLINT TWP. — During a door-to-door safety campaign on October 17, township firefighters found no smoke alarms present in nearly every occupied dwelling in the Pasadena Mobile Home Park, said Assistant Fire Chief Mike Burkley.
Two teams of firefighters participated in the effort to improve safety for township residents. They installed 32 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms equipped with ten-year batteries, Burkley said.
The alarms were distributed for free to low-to-moderate income residents and paid for by Community Development Block Grant funds.
Fire personnel participating in the door-to-door campaign included Burkley and on-call firefighters Greg King, Paul Roop, Haskel Walker and Bennie Griggs.
A few more of the free combination units are still available to eligible residents on a first-come, first served basis at Fire station 1. 5331 Reuben Street, Burkley said. For more information, call 810-732-4413.
