Bristol Fire Company (Station 51) received a $1,000 incentive award on behalf of Bristol Borough Council on Monday, December 2, for the installation of more than 300 carbon monoxide detectors throughout Bristol Borough. The award was available to all of the Borough fire companies, and Station 51 was the first to meet the goal of 300 detectors installed. 

“Carbon monoxide detectors are essential to household safety,” explained Station 51 Fire Chief Herb Slack. “The award will be used to support this continued initiative; and receiving it is a credit to all of the Bristol residents who reached out for detector installation.”

 

The Carbon monoxide detectors, as well as smoke alarms, are free to any resident and will be installed by the fire department as requested.

Each year, more than 20,000 Americans visit the emergency room with symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning and about 400 people die from the odorless, colorless gas. If your household is not equipped with a carbon monoxide detector, you can contact Station 51 and possibly get one installed in your home free of charge.

“To ensure all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order, we stress that residents check them each month because they save lives,” Slack emphasized.

For more information regarding the installation of a carbon monoxide detector or smoke alarm contact Station 51 at 215-785-1975 or visit the station at 198 Wood Street in Bristol.
