The Price Foundation has awarded the Clark County Fire and Rescue Firefighters Association a grant for $7830 to replenish CCFR’s supply of smoke alarms. Kay Dalke-Sheadel from the Price Foundation presented the check to CCFR Firefighters Association Treasurer Jack Bothwell, Fire Commissioner Stan Chunn, Fire Chief John Nohr, and CCFR Volunteer Smoke Alarm Program Coordinator Tom Cook during the August 22nd Board of Commissioners meeting.
“The CCFR Firefighters Association has used the grant to purchase 560 smoke alarms for donation the CCFR Smoke Alarm Program. The alarms have a ten-year battery and are combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms. For our citizens, Clark County Fire and Rescue will test, replace batteries and install new detectors at no cost, if needed. Smoke Alarm Program Coordinator Tom Cook will utilize the supply of new alarms to help us continue to provide alarms free of charge. Citizens who would like to have their smoke alarms checked can contact CCFR at 360-887-4609.”
