Mount Vernon Fire Department Seeks Volunteers To Install Smoke Detectors

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – The Mount Vernon Fire Department, the American Red Cross and the Office of Civil Defense Department will be having a recruitment drive to find volunteers to help install smoke detectors throughout the city.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the city council chambers at city hall.

The main smoke detector installation day for Mount Vernon will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 25.

Officials are seeking volunteers to train for different roles, not just installing smoke detectors.

Volunteers can be trained as a disaster safety educator to help local residents create a home safety plan.

Another position available is that of a documenter/reporter. This role will entail completing documents during and after the smoke detector installations.

Meals will be provided to volunteers during their time of service.
