The Upton Fire –EMS Department is able to provide battery powered smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to senior residents of Upton who own their own home and are unable to purchase them. Every home should have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Having working smoke alarms can double your chances of survival if a fire occurs. Since 2006, state law has required carbon monoxide alarms in most homes. This year the Upton Fire-EMS Department was awarded a Senior SAFE grant to assist members of the fire department in providing fire and live safety education to the senior residents of the Town. This includes purchasing the smoke and Co detectors, home installation of these detectors and home visits to assist the homeowner in making sure their home is safe from fire and how to eliminate any hazards found. Please contact Lt. Bonnie Lopez for more information at 508-529-3421.
