Jamie Mooney from the Franklin Fire Department, sent me this announcement:
I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming Franklin event, "Smoke Alarm Discount Day," on Saturday, October 10. In honor of National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 4-10), the Franklin Fire Department has organized an event to "alarm" residents. On Saturday, October 10, the following Franklin retailers will discount smoke alarms by 20 percent:
- Harpeth True Value – Columbia Ave.
- Home Depot – S. Royal Oaks Blvd.
- Kmart – Watson Glen
- Lowes – Mallory Ln.
- Target - Parkway Commons
- Target - Cool Springs
- Wal Mart – Mallory Ln.
Personal Note From Me: If you have smoke detectors, but not a carbon monoxide detector, I highly recommend that you spend the extra money for one of these. While they do tend to seem pricey in comparison to smoke alarms, they are an important part of having a safe home. My family was saved serious potential consequences when our carbon monoxide alarm went off several years ago. Remember, one does not substitute for the other. You need several smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector.
