Homeowners throughout Warren County may now benefit from a free smoke detector program offered by McMinnville Fire Department. Established in 2013 for city homeowners, the program has recently been expanded to include homeowners throughout Warren County. Pictured are McMinnville Fire Chief Kendall Mayfield, right, and Lt.

McMinnville Fire Department’s free smoke detector program is now available to all residents who live in Warren County.“Our program is now countywide,” said McMinnville Fire Chief Kendall Mayfield. “County residents can now participate, as well as those inside the city. Since the program began in 2013, we’ve installed approximately 600 smoke detectors.”For homeowners without a smoke detector, the department partnered with the state fire marshal in 2013 to obtain free smoke detectors that contain a 10-year lithium battery.
