HUBER HEIGHTS — The Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union donated 50 carbon monoxide detectors to the Huber Heights Fire Division on Tuesday. The detectors will be given to households that need a working detector.
The donation is part of 360 detectors being donated to seven local fire departments in Dayton, Kettering, Trotwood, Huber Heights, Butler Township, Sugarcreek Township and Troy.
This is the second year in a row the credit union has donated carbon monoxide detectors to the communities they serve, for a total of 681 carbon monoxide detectors. The past two years the credit union has chosen to donate a detector for each skip-a-loan-payment fee received from their holiday promotion.
“We are proud to partner with the Miami Valley fire departments to help try to protect residents from carbon monoxide poisoning”, said Marketing Manager, Shannon O’Neill.
“We would not be able to support financially the number of detectors we give out each year without donations like this one from the Dayton Fire Fighers Credit Union,” said Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth. “It is a goal of mine before I retire that every house in Huber Heights has a working smoke and CO detector.”
If you have a need for a CO or smoke detector, contact the Division of Fire at 233-1564.
