It’s a tragedy the Lake Area has, recently, become too familiar with…fatal house fires. While many house fires cannot be prevented, the chances of escaping alive are greatly enhanced with proper protection in the form of an adequate number of smoke detectors. It’s also the purpose behind a gathering, Saturday in the Osage Beach HyVee parking lot, for the 3rd annual Smoke Detector Giveaway. Chris Wagner, from Farmer’s Insurance, says the giveaway is a very cool way for kids to learn about fire safety.
Joining Farmers to co-sponsor the giveaway was the Community Foundation of the Lake and several other business partners. Several area fire districts were also represented at the smoke detector giveaway.
