The Cottonwood Fire Department's ongoing "Smoke Detector program" recently targeted El Rio del Oro Mobile Home Park located at 325 W. 89A.
On Nov. 21, Cottonwood Fire Department shift personnel along with Fire Marshal Rick Contreras and Inspector Steve Trautman canvassed 87 homes at El Rio del Oro Mobile Home senior living community. Fire personnel installed smoke detectors in 35 homes and distributed an additional five detectors to residents in the community who wanted to install the detectors themselves.
The program goal is to find Cottonwood areas having the greatest need for smoke detectors and then provide and, if requested, install new or additional smoke detectors so residents and their homes are properly protected.
The smoke detectors installed or distributed to El Rio del Oro residents were graciously provided to the Cottonwood Fire Department by the Camp Verde District who received the smoke detectors in a grant. This program is part of Cottonwood Fire Department's ongoing commitment to finding meaningful ways to promote fire and life safety in our community.
