The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

Volunteers install smoke alarms


December 27, 2016

Volunteers from the Red Cross and Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District installed 177 smoke detectors in local manufactured homes recently.

In November, they installed them in 65 homes in manufactured home parks, said Mike Severns, a paramedic-firefighter with SHFAD, and they’re looking at returning and installing detectors in more homes. The Linn County Red Cross installed its 10,000th detector during that day.

“I think a lot of them had them, but they weren’t working,” Severns said, noting that batteries were drained or removed or the detector was no longer functioning.
