Charlottesville's City Fire Department has a new reason to celebrate 2006.
The end of this year marks the 10Th consecutive year that the city fire department has had no deaths caused by fire.
It's also the 10 year anniversary of the city's smoke detector program.
We talked with fire officials today who say this is a reason to celebrate on many accounts.
"We really attribute that to probably four things. The citizens, the city, the firefighters, and the speed at which we can get to a person's home," said David Hartman, Battalion Chief.
The city does have a free smoke detector program in place.
Anyone who lives within the city limits can call the fire department and request free smoke detector installation.
That number is 434-970-3245.
