Never Again! West Virginia Fire Detector Program
Charleston, West Virginia — WCHS is teaming up with the Charleston Fire Department and the local community to help install fire detectors in as many homes as possible in light of this past weekend’s fatal fire that killed nine people, including seven children. Below is a short article from Jessica Reed reporting on behalf of WCHS:
“We are asking for your help to assist local fire departments in their mission to save lives by putting working smoke detectors into as many homes as possible.
We are calling this effort, “Never Again!”All this week, you can drop off monetary donations in person, or mail them to the Charleston Fire Department. Here is the address:
Charleston Fire Department
Smoke Detector Fund
808 Virginia Street West
Charleston, WV 25302
Firefighters will use this money to buy smoke detectors in bulk.
Charleston firefighters will hand out the devices at Eyewitness News studios at 1301 Piedmont Road in Charleston on Friday, March 30, starting at 5:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., and Saturday March 31, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Proper installation is key to this effort, so every person who takes a detector will be required to provide the fire department contact information so they can follow up to make sure each was properly installed, or they will install it for them.
This is your chance to take action and say, “Never Again!” ”
The personal injury law firm of West Law Offices will match any of its Facebook friend’s donations up to a $500 total donation. Please let us know how much you donated on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/westlawoffices. Thank you.
