Chesterfield residents who act quickly can take advantage of a limted supply of half-off smoke alarms being provided by the Monarch Fire Protection District.
The deal is part of an agreement between the district and the Home Depot store in Chesterfield valley to supply 600 of the hard-wired alarms to residents living within the district for $10.90 each.
The smoke alarms are being offered on a first-come, first-serve basis due to the limited and the district has said it will provide installation free of charge, although it needs to be pre-scheduled.
Payment for the smoke alarms must be received prior to installation. Residents may contact the District through their website at www.monarchfpd.org to schedule an installation.
The smoke alarms are 120-volt Kidde Model i2060 and come with a 10-year warranty and an easy to change front-loading battery backup.
In an email announcing the service, Monarch firefighter Shawn Karl said the district has always offered battery operated smoke alarms to residents without working smoke alarms, and the new service is just another step aimed at improving residents' safety.
