Rochester FD hosts event to supply public with fire detectors

The Rochester Fire Department is hosting an event this weekend to help provide smoke detectors to the community.  The Smoke Detector Fund Walk and Fireman Challenge is scheduled for Sunday.  Proceeds will be used to supply smoke detectors to the public.


The walk will start at the Rochester Fire Department at 2:00 pm.  Entry fee is $5 per person or $20 for a family of five or more. 


The Fireman Challenge runs from 1-5 p.m. It will include a timed course so people can get a feel for what a fireman faces including dragging hoses, mannequins and crawling through obstacles.
