Firehouse Subs donates 300 smoke alarms to Greenville Fire/Rescue

Posted: Updated:
A local sub shop made a big donation in the name of safety.

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded 300 smoke alarms to the Greenville Fire/Rescue EMS department.
     
They're partnering with the fire department to get them installed in homes that don't have fire alarms.
     
It's all part of the Greenville Fire's Code Red Smoke Alarm program.
     
Interim Chief Eric Griffin says the alarms are the latest technology.

"The good thing about the new smoke alarm and the ones that Firehouse has been responsible for providing is that they are a ten year smoke alarm, so the battery is a lithium type battery,” said Eric Griffin, interim rescue chief. “[It] does not have to be replaced for ten years. However, it does need to be checked every month."

All of the smoke alarms are worth more than $5,000.
