Safe Haven results Lives saved at 407 Thomas Avenue: “…Thanks so much for coming to our home and doing the fire safety inspection and for installing smoke alarms and CO detector. Unfortunately we had a carbon monoxide leak. We are thankful the detector went off and alerted us especially since my husband is at end stage cancer and was in the bed. The FD came and aired the house out and called Xcel. It was reading at 89 but they were able to get it to 0… P.S. the kids really enjoyed being able to explore the fire truck and equipment and ask questions. It was a fun learning experience…” - The Wrights
