After a fatal fire in Wallace took the lives of 3 people in January. A Clarksburg Fire Captain decided to do more to protect residents in Harrison County.
Captain Cindy Murphy created operation “Not One More.” The goal of the program is to provide every first grader in the county with a 10 year smoke detector and Monday that goal was achieved!
“It makes me feel really good because I know we will now have close to 900 working smoking detectors in this county. It also means we have a big public service campaign we need to do to make sure those detectors get up. If they are still sitting in a bag at the kids house, it’s not going to help. We want to make sure parents are well aware that the kids did receive those and make sure they do put them up and are testing them monthly,” said Captain Murphy.
If you would like to donate to the program, you can drop off or send a check to the Clarksburg Fire Department.
