The Bossier City Fire Department’s home
smoke detector program received a boost through a generous donation from State
Local State Farm Agent Kerry Landry
and State Farm’s Northwest Louisiana Sales Leader Tony Smith presented a $2000
grant to the Bossier City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Bureau to purchase
smoke detectors, which will be distributed to Bossier City residents free of
charge as part of an ongoing service provided by the Bossier City Fire
According to the latest statistics from the
National Fire Protection Association three of every five home fire deaths
result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
Any Bossier City resident in need of
a smoke detector can call the Bossier City Fire Department at (318)741-8704 to
arrange a convenient time to have a new smoke detector installed in their home
free of charge.
