LeAnder Jackson Recognized by
LeAnder Jackson and six other Boy Scouts from
Mt. Zion Troop 99 were presented with Certificates of
Appreciation for volunteering with the Red Cross's Home Fire
On October 11th, 2014 they gave away and installed
smoke detectors in an Albany neighborhood where a lot of house fires
break out. Two days later, a woman escaped her burning home when her new
smoke alarm woke her up.
Boy Scout LeAnder Jackson said, "When I found
out we saved a life I was shocked because I didn't know it would happen
so quickly or make such a big difference as it did. So I hope that other
people are seeing that installing smoke detectors in homes will save a
life and it might be yours."
