Howland firefighters install free smoke alarms for residents

Howland firefighters went door to door in Bolindale to install free smoke alarms for residents

Bolindale, Ohio (WKBN) – Howland Fire Department is trying to keep the community safe with its door-to-door smoke detector campaign.

On Saturday, it was in the Bolindale area checking residents’ smoke detectors, putting new batteries in them and even installing new smoke detectors in homes.

“With six installs today, those are six people that did not have [smoke detectors],” said Chief James Pantalone. “It’s great that we get the opportunity to get out and actually meet people and get them installed, so six is a good number.”

This program is free for Howland residents. It’s funded through the fire department budget.

This is the second part of the smoke detector campaign. Last spring, firefighters spent time in the Morgandale Area doing the same thing.
