Sweet Water VFD to conduct class on March 27

The Sweet Water Volunteer Fire Department, the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Sweet Water Ladies’ Auxiliary will conduct a program that will help protect lives and property in Marengo County.

This program, called the Alabama Smoke Alarm Initiative, will have volunteers canvass door-to-door to offer and install smoke alarms to residents who need them, all provided free of charge.

Fire department, public health and auxiliary volunteers will kick off the event on Saturday, March 27, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Sweet Water Fire Department Station 2, located at 351 Main St. in Sweet Water. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

“We will be looking for volunteers, donations and a chance to meet our community,” said Capt. James Cortright. “So, if you have a chance, come by the station, grab a snack and find out for yourself what we will be doing in your neighborhood to help educate and protect you and your community.”

For more information, contact Cortright at (334) 994-6174 or the Sweet Water Volunteer Fire Department at (334) 994-9911.
