A popular safety event around the lake is coming up this weekend. The annual smoke detector giveaway will be held Saturday at the Camden County Courthouse. It’s a partnership of the Community Foundation of the Lake and Farmers Insurance, who donates $10,000 to the disaster recovery fund to pay for the detectors. Chris Wagner says they not only provide the smoke detector, but there’s also help available after the event ends.
Any smoke detectors left over will be distributed to area fire districts for distribution throughout the year. Saturday’s event begins at 11am and is scheduled to last until 2pm.
