Firefighters Install almost 1,000 Smoke Detectors
During Nampa's Community Assisted Smoke Detector and Addressing Program (CASDAP), firefighters visit hundreds of residents in predetermined neighborhoods. As they go door-to-door, they ask residents to allow them to inspect their current smoke detectors, install new smoke detectors as needed, and install proper address numbers on the exterior of their home.
This project is funded with HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
In one year, 328 residences were contacted. A whopping 943 battery-operated smoke detectors were installed and 20 hard-wired smoke detectors were installed. In addition, 246 of these homes had address numbers installed.
