Plan on seeing Clinton Fire Department personnel and trucks around the community in the next few weeks.
Blake West with the Clinton Fire Department says their annual fire safety sweep is underway, which means in the next week or two, they will be stopping by your house to make sure you have an operating smoke alarm, and if you do not, the firefighters will make sure they leave with one working in your home.
The annual sweep is also a time of fundraising for the fire department and Commissioner Dan Ballenger says the funds this year are earmarked for their training facility that is being completed now. Ballenger says they have big plans for the structure that is being built on Cain Street.
Plan on firefighters stopping around the community tonight but West says their primary days out will be Tuesdays through Thursday until they have stopped at every door in Clinton.
