Over the last couple of years the Dixon Fire Department members have noticed a real need for properly functioning and installed smoke detectors for the elderly. It often times was simply a matter of them being physically unable to install the detectors in the proper location or just unable to afford new detectors.
With that need recognized, our Charitable Association established a program to assist the elderly and citizens with physical and/or mental disabilities. The program provides one free ten-year smoke detector to those in need. Members will come to the residence and properly install a detector that will last ten years with no maintenance or battery replacement. If they need more detectors, we will have them for purchase and will happily install. A special thank you to Kidde smoke detector company for providing us with a sponsorship for fifty smoke detectors at no cost.
