Saltillo FD to provide, install smoke detectors

Lee County StockSALTILLO – Homeowners can have their homes outfitted with smoke detectors for free thanks to a grant from the Mississippi fire marshal.

Saltillo firefighters are installing smoke detectors in the homes of Saltillo residents. Fire Chief Mark Nowell said they will inspect homes and install as many new smoke detectors as needed.

“You need one in every sleeping area, the hallways outside of sleeping areas and maybe one more if you have an open floor plan,” he said.

Saltillo residents can sign up at Saltillo City Hall.
