Decatur Assistant Fire Chief Jim Hitchcock says that by the first part of next week, the city fire department will have smoke detectors for use by county residents.
Anyone who needs a smoke detector may visit the fire station on Seventh St., just off Adams St., or call the department, 724-8909.
Hitchcock noted, however, that the detectors will not be given to anyone. "Instead, we will take them to the home and install them to be sure they are installed properly," he said.
