The Hannah Griggs Memorial Carbon Monoxide Project (C.O.P.) has again joined forces with the Oronoco Fire Department!
We will be launching a program that will provide community members with CO Detectors and Smoke Alarms free of charge. The program will allow for residents to apply online for the type of safety device they require and schedule the installation with a qualified professional. Our goal is to reach 100% of our Community in the year 2015 as well as maintain the program indefinitely for future residents and replacement detectors.
Many residents don’t have working CO alarms in their homes. We estimate 20%-30% just in our immediate area.
Please consider a financial contribution to help us meet our initial fundraising goal of $4000.
Spreading awareness by letting your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors know about our Safety detection and alarm initiative is another great way to support the program and our community.
In Loving Memory.....

What is the HANNAH GRIGGS Memorial Carbon Monoxide Program?
This is a program initiated by a local Oronoco Family who in 2004, lost their daughter Hannah Jane (3 ½ yrs old) in a Carbon Monoxide accident in the Kings Park Area. This Family did not have a Carbon Monoxide detector or realize the true dangers that Carbon Monoxide presents. They created a family legacy after taking their story and concerns to the legislature and worked to pass “Hannah’s Law” statute 299F.51 in 2007. Carbon Monoxide detectors are now mandated across the state of MN due to an event that took place right here in our community.
We hope that you’ll consider partnering with us to make this essential safety program a success.
