Each year across the country too many people die of smoke inhalation and fires in homes without working smoke detectors. As a result of several fires and the tragic deaths of two children in 2010, The Council Bluffs Fire Department, with the gracious support of several businesses, foundations and individual donors, started “Project Alex.”
This project provides dual sensor detectors in homes with the hope of preventing further tragic loss of life. The CBFD and American Red Cross are looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping out with their next neighborhood smoke detector campaign.
On March 23rd CBFD is hoping to have enough volunteers to knock on the doors in three areas of Council Bluffs that have had a high fire loss history. One area is around Franklin School, one around Longfellow School and the last is the Play Land Park area.
If interested please contact Angela Day at 712-435-5676 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the event.
