ZFD Install smoke detectors

The ZFD is starting a fire prevention program, by installing smoke detectors “for free” for citizens who do not have smoke detectors or cannot install them.  We are requesting names, addresses, how many people are in the home, and a phone number to call, for the person who would need this service.  The LA State Fire Marshal’s Office is providing the ZFD with the free smoke detectors.

For more information citizens can call the ZFD at 654-0026.
