Thanks to a partnership with Atlantic City Electric and Operation 6 Save a Life's Smoke Detector Campaign, Gloucester County has 130 smoke detectors available for free to local residents.
Freeholder Deputy Director Giuseppe "Joe" Chila accepted the smoke detector donation from Bert Lopez, the Public Affairs Manager of Atlantic City Electric, earlier this week. Included in the donation are some smoke detectors for the hearing impaired and batteries. The hearing impaired detectors have flashing lights that can alert residents to smoke.
“The county periodically receives smoke detectors through various donations and we want to make sure they are getting out to those who need them,” said Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert Damminger. “I encourage anyone in need of a smoke detector or a replacement battery to take advantage of this program and contact the Gloucester County Fire Marshall’s Office.”
Any residents interested in receiving a smoke detector or batteries can contact the fire marshal's office at 856-307-7100.
