JCFD to end food drive with community outreach event

The Johnson City Fire Department is hosting a food drive in support of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee. Donations of nonperishable items are being accepted at all City fire stations. The food drive will culminate with a community outreach event on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Station 1, 2238 Watauga Road.

JCFD will be partnering with the Johnson City Police Department and Washington County – Johnson City EMS. Car seat technicians will be available to check and install car seats. Citizens will be able to sign up for smoke detectors who do not have a working smoke detector in their home.

“One of the best ways you can protect your family in the event of a fire is to make sure your home is equipped with working smoke alarms,” said Fire Chief David Bell. “As a service to our citizens, we will install smoke detectors in residences within city limits.”
