Ashland Fire and American Red Cross to Canvass Borough Installing Smoke Alarms

The Ashland Fire Department and the American Red Cross are going to team up to canvass the borough and install more smoke alarms.

On Saturday, March 23rd, 2019, volunteers from the Ashland Fire Department, American Red Cross, and organizations will be going door to door to install smoke alarms in homes.

After the fire that took place on Brock Street in the borough on February 21st, 2019,  that displaced 30 people, borough officials are using that as a wake up call to again make sure all homes have smoke alarms.

This campaign will focus on homes on Spruce Street, Pine Street, and Brock Street.  Starting at 10:00am, volunteers will go door to door, asking residents if they can install brand new smoke alarms wherever they are needed in the homes for free.

During previous campaigns, volunteers have installed nearly 300 smoke alarms in the borough.

Those who would like to preregister, and any other residents in the borough of Ashland that is interested in free smoke alarms, should contact the borough office at (570) 875-2411.
