about home fire safety and free smoke alarms
Bill Santistevan, who lives on 5th Street in Pueblo, met the volunteers on his front porch with a welcome smile. He has one smoke alarm in his home but knows he should have more. “I have trouble hearing so with only one smoke alarm I might not hear it,” Santistevan said. “This will help me a lot because I can’t afford to buy more.” Safety information and information about how to contact the Pueblo Fire Department were provided to him and he vowed to call the Pueblo Fire Department that same day.

while canvassing for home fire safety in Pueblo
The Pueblo volunteers will be canvassing again on Saturday, October 4. They will team up again with additional Loaf’N Jug volunteers to cover a larger area. “This is a multi-year project and we have a lot of territory to cover,” Shufelt said. “We’ll do it house-by-house and street-by-street and hopefully save lives in the process.”
