An area fire department is taking an extra step in making sure its local businesses are prepared in case of a fire. The Hardy Fire Department is installing free smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in every building on their Main Street area. Mayor Jason Jackson told Region 8 News Thursday that the project helps both the businesses and the volunteer firefighters in case of any emergency. “We’re still a volunteer fire department, we don’t have anybody full time on staff, so in the event of a fire, the best thing is prevention,” said Jackson. Kristin Proulx owns Leaves and Beans, one of the first businesses the Hardy Fire Department installed a free smoke detector and fire extinguisher.
