Fire Safety Time
November 25, 2016
Recently six lives were tragically lost in a fire that engulfed a local home leaving the family and the entire community perplexed and brokenhearted. Understanding the need for safety and fire protection a local company stepped forward with a plan to lessen this occurrence.
Performance Ventures, which offers the much sought after energy shot High 5 Energy teamed up with distribution giant Eagle Rock Distributing (Budweiser products) and purchased 200 Smoke Detectors which were donated to the Summerville Fire Department.
According to Fire Chief Robbie Lathem, “The Fire Detectors are made available free to the public on a first-come first-served basis. Installation is conducted by appointment courtesy of the Department. Residents must come to the Summerville Fire Department located at 176 Cox Street 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday to participate.”
Any other local businesses desiring to partner with the Fire Department may contact Chief Lathem at (706) 859-0914. Together we can make Summerville a fire-safe city.
