Xenia Fire Division was one of several departments that received donated carbon monoxide detectors this week from the Firefighters & Company Federal Credit Union.
The credit union, formally known as Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union, has been donating CO detectors to local communities for eight years. Since the program began, the credit union has donated nearly 4,000 detectors. This year it will donate 750 CO detectors across Montgomery, Greene, and Miami Counties. "It is exciting to see this program grow year after year and hear how much the departments appreciate and look forward to the donation to help their residents," said Shannon O’Neill, Marketing Manager for the credit union.
"We are thankful for this very important donation," said Xenia Fire Division Chief Kenneth Riggsby. "Carbon monoxide detectors save lives and we want to make sure they are available to anyone who needs one." Xenia Fire Division received 75 CO detectors this year and will pass them on to residents within the city.
