Westfield Fire Dept. aims for $25k for carbon monoxide detector outreach

Busby Eye Care was the first in what Fire Marshal Garry Harling hopes will be many donors for the Westfield Fire Dept.’s new carbon monoxide outreach program. Busby Eye Care’s donation will be used to purchase 10 carbon monoxide detectors for Westfield residents.

“Carbon monoxide poisoning is responsible for more than 400 deaths in the United States every year,” Harling stated in a press release. “CO detectors will alert residents of a natural gas leak in their home before it becomes deadly. Our goal is to eliminate the barrier of residents not having a CO detector by offering them one free of cost. Busby Eye Care has been gracious enough to be the first to contribute to our program.”

Harling stated that he hopes for $25,000 in donations for the carbon monoxide detector outreach program.
