CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - A partnership between a national business and a group of civic clubs could soon save lives in Crisp County.
Home Depot and the Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce got together to donate 50 smoke detectors.
The Cordele Fire Department and the Crisp County Fire Rescue each got 25 detectors.
Crisp County Fire Rescue will deliver these smoke detectors to people in an upcoming blitz.
Crisp County Fire Chief Jonathan Windham wanted to thank Home Depot and the Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce.
"Without their generous donations, the operation could not be done," said Chief Windham.
Chief Windham said the date of the blitz will be announced soon.
"These new models, they carry a 10-year warranty," said Cordele Fire Chief Augusta Telfair. "Battery is also included in that 10 years. You don't have to worry about changing the batteries."
