LFD receives $15,000 grant to buy & install smoke detectors

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Fire Department received a $15,000 grant Tuesday to purchase and install smoke detectors in Lexington homes that currently don’t have the potentially life-saving device.

Columbia Gas of Kentucky presented the grant from the NiSource Charitable Foundation.

The grant will pay for an estimated 1,150 smoke detectors.  The units will run off lithium batteries, which only need to be replaced every 10-years.

The installation program is scheduled to begin in November of this year, according to the fire department.

The fire chief says the department will begin installing the detectors in the Cardinal Valley area.
