For purposes of distribution, the city has been divided into nine districts, according to Assistant Fire Chief Mark McKleroy. For district one, please see the map.
“We’ll be spending about two weeks at a time in each district,” McKleroy said, “starting with the outside areas of the city limits first. And the grant only covers the city limits, not our full coverage area.”
The grant was for about $30,000 and was awarded through the federal Fire Protection and Safety Program. Firefighters will assist with the installation of the alarms.
Qualified residents can pick up applications either at the main fire station at City Hall or at Station 2 in Brecon. The completed application must be returned to Station 1.
