La Follette Fire Chief Jimmy Pack looks at the more than 100 batteries donated by Smith ACE Hardware.

LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – “It’s time change weekend, and we want folks to take time to change the batteries in their smoke detectors,” said La Follette Fire Chief Jimmy Pack. Sherman Campbell and the folks at Smith ACE Hardware are working with the fire department to help folks replace their batteries. As a result, Smith’s has donated more than 100 nine-volt batteries.

The chief says you can stop by Fire Station 1 on East Beech Street and get your free battery as long as the supply lasts. “You can also give us a call at 423.562.3340,” said Chief Pack.

These are 9-volt batteries.

Pack expressed his appreciation to Campbell for working with them. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/03/2022-6AM)
