The Verde Valley Fire and EMS Chiefs Association was recently awarded a grant from Unisource Emergency Services/Tucson Electric Power in the amount of $2,600. These funds will be used to purchase educational materials and approximately 160 carbon monoxide (CO) detectors for low-income, Veteran and disabled persons. Individuals fitting these guidelines who need a detector should contact their local fire or EMS agency. Participating agencies are: Copper Canyon Fire & Medical District, Cottonwood Fire & Medical Department, Jerome Fire Department, Sedona Fire District, Verde Valley Ambulance Company and Verde Valley Fire District. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced from burning wood, coal, propane and other fuels.
