PLYMOUTH - The Terryville Fire Department and the fire marshalâ€™s office have received 96 smoke alarms and 18 carbon monoxide alarms through Operation Save a Life.
The smoke and CO alarms are available free to town residents as long as the supply lasts.
The smoke alarms may be picked up at the fire marshalâ€™s office at Town Hall, 80 Main St., Terryville. The 18 CO alarms will be kept on fire department vehicles and distributed to residents on a need basis.
