Home Depot has generously donated a large number of smoke detectors to the village. Chief Sheets said that neighborhood fire stations are well stocked.
OLFD will also help residents install the smoke detectors AT NO COST, and check current battery/hardwired detectors to ensure that they are in working order.
If you, a neighbor, or an elderly or disabled family members are in need of a smoke detector, pick one up at your neighborhood fire station or call one of these numbers.
