Wal-Mart in Troy, presented the Lincoln County Firefighter’s Foundation with a check for $1,100. The grant funds will be used to purchase fire extinguishers and educate those most at risk of home cooking fires, a leading cause of home fires in Lincoln County.
The Lincoln County Firefighters give their sincere thanks to Wal-Mart for the grant and for giving back to the community that supports them. Wal-Mart donated a total of $8,100 on Nov. 1 to many community organizations in Lincoln County.
Home cooking fires most often occur when cooking is left unattended. If you need to leave the room…even for a minute, turn off the heat. It may just save your life and your home.
