Free smoke detectors 1.06.2010

The Morenci Fire Department’s smoke detector project is off to a good start, said coordinator Kim Valentine, but they’ve encountered a problem.

Several people who were interested in receiving a free detector gave a number to call several months ago before the department started its free installation program.

Now that the installations are underway, several phone numbers aren’t working. Valentine doesn’t know if the people have moved out of the area or if their numbers have changed.

He urges anyone interested in receiving a detector to call 458-2301 and leave a message.
