Cookeville Fire Department was recognized by the State Fire Marshal’s Office Thursday for work in smoke alarm installations.
Captain Daniel Snyder said Cookeville placed in the top 75 out of more than 500 departments in the state for its participation in the free installation program.
“On a crew that might install a handful, but we might not realize how many that we’re actually installing and how big of an impact that can have on our community installing that many smoke alarms,” Snyder said. “It’s a good feeling to get a little recognition on the back side of it.”
Snyder said this comes as part of a celebration acknowledging ten years of fire departments completing free smoke alarm installations across the state. He said the State Fire Marshal’s office provides participating departments with the alarms that local crews in
Putnam County Fire Department also received recognition.
