FREE SMOKE DETECTORS- Bronson Area Fire Department

FREE SMOKE DETECTORS


The Bronson Fire Department is proud to announce its participation in the Home Fire Campaign launched by the American Red Cross to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by home fires by as much as 25 percent over five years. Achieving this goal is beyond the means of any one organization, and the Bronson Fire Department is proud to partner with the American Red Cross and other coalition partners to achieve these goals by installing smoke alarms and providing live-saving fire and disaster safety education, especially in at-risk communities. 

Home fires are the biggest threat facing American families, affecting more people annually than floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes combined. On average, home fires cause approximately 2,500 deaths and nearly $7 billion in property damage every year. Seven times a day someone dies in a home fire, and every 40 minutes, an injury from a fire is reported. The rate of home fire deaths and injuries has remained relatively constant over the past twenty years. By mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors, the American Red Cross and the Bronson Fire Department can attack this stagnation and work toward significantly lowering the incidence of death and injuries from home fires. 

Having a working smoke detectors reduces the chance of death from a home fire by 50 percent. If you do not have working smoke detectors, live in the Bronson fire district, and would like assistance, the Bronson Fire Department will supply and install smoke detectors in your home for free (while supplies last). To schedule an appointment, call the Bronson Fire Department at (517) 369-6475.

Crowdfunding Campaign Launched for Bronson’s Memorial Park

The City of Bronson today announced a new crowdfunding campaign through Michigan-based crowdfunding platform Patronicity. The campaign will support the project to complete the final phase of Memorial Park located in downtown Bronson that will continue to serve as a gathering space for the community.

If the campaign reaches its crowdfunding goal of $12,500 by March 10th, the project will win a matching grant with funds made possible by MEDC’s Public Spaces Community Places program.

The City is in the midst of a redevelopment project for Memorial Park in honor of longtime Mayor Thomas Rissman. Phase I of the project involved relocating the gazebo to the northwest corner of the park to accommodate larger crowds for the Music in the Park. Phase II involved a brick paved walk way leading through the park and was completed in late 2015.  The final phase will involve the creation of a water feature as well as landscaping and irrigation improvements.  The goal of this fundraising effort is to fully fund the remaining improvement goals the City has for this great community asset and gathering place.  

"We are very excited to launch this crowdfunding matching grant project to complete the City's vision for Memorial Park. Memorial Park is located prominently in the City's Downtown and serves as a resting place for patrons of the City's Downtown,” said City Manager, Brandon Mersman. “Further activating this public space will enhance not only the City's park system but will be a tremendous asset to the Downtown and the entire community.”
