WESTON, Vt. – The Weston Volunteer Fire Department, in conjunction with Green Mountain Fire Equipment Company, will offer the sale of various size fire extinguishers to the citizens of our town. These extinguishers will be sold at Green Mountain’s current prices, the WVFD will make no profit from this sale. A list of interested persons will be collected at Town Meeting on March 6, 2018 and for two weeks after. The actual sale will take place at the Weston Volunteer Fire Department station in early May 2018. Safety information and extinguisher demonstrations will happen on that day and purchasers will be notified when that day will be. Existing fire extinguishers may be brought to the firehouse on that day for inspection.
In addition, during this same time period, the Weston Volunteer Fire Department, in conjunction with the American Red Cross of New Hampshire and Vermont, is implementing a program for free smoke detector delivery and installation for Weston town citizens who do not have protection.
To obtain a free smoke detector, which will be installed by certified members of the Fire Department or the Red Cross, simply sign up on town meeting day in the lobby, call the Weston Volunteer Fire Department and leave a message 802-824-3539 or contact a member before March 15, 2018. These smoke detectors meet the latest recommendations or requirements of state laws and will last for ten years without battery replacement. Fire safety information will also be distributed to those wanting such material.
