Horry County Fire Rescue to provide smoke detectors

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) The Horry County Fire Rescue would like to remind residents to check to see if they have working smoke detectors in their homes because they're the first line of defense in saving lives in case of a fire.

For those who don't have smoke detectors because they can't afford them, the Horry County Fire Rescue team will provide and install them for free, according to the HCFR Web Site.

For more information on this program, or to inquire about smoke detectors, contact Kathy Nieuwenhuis at 843-915-7061 or email her at nieuwenk@horrycounty.org.
