The Turkey Creek Fire Territory, in an effort to increase awareness and protect our community from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, is providing free carbon monoxide detectors to everyone that cannot afford one. We would like to get at least one carbon monoxide detector in every residence in the Turkey Creek Township and the Town of Syracuse in order to help protect everyone from the dangers of this odorless and colorless gas. Dependent upon the structure in which you live, more than one carbon monoxide may be suggested. We will provide the first one to you free of charge. If you would like to receive a free carbon monoxide detector, just stop by either Station #1 at: 402 N. Huntington St. or Station #2 at: 8138 E. McClintic Rd. or give us a call at (574)457-4100--Station #1 or (574)457-5507--Station #2.
