Keep Douglasville Beautiful (KDB) announces their selection as a grant recipient of 36,000 9V Duracell batteries, awarded through the 2018 Duracell/ Keep America Beautiful Battery Grant Program.
KDB is excited to partner with the Douglas County Fire/EMS Department in support of Fire Prevention Month, which is observed in October, to distribute 9V batteries to benefit families in our community.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, two-thirds of all fire deaths occur in homes in which smoke alarms either aren’t present or aren’t working. The batteries from the grant program are for use in home safety devices, such as smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
For added safety, Duracell has battery handling tips and overall best practices for you.
The batteries will be available at the Keep Douglasville Beautiful/Douglas County Fire Station booth during the September Saturday’s event held on 9/22 and 9/29, at the Recycling Event held at the First Presbyterian Church overflow parking lot on 9/29, and at each Douglas County Fire Station beginning October 1, 2018.
Families can receive up to 3 batteries each free of charge.
