GOLDEN VALLEY - Golden Valley firefighters installed smoke alarms in the home of Golden Valley resident Debra Eaton under the newly developed Robert P. Davies Memorial Residential Fire Safety Program, which was named after the late Robert Davies.
Debra qualified because she is becoming a guardian to three minors, and Arizona Children Association safety requirements must be met before the guardianship can proceed.
Prior to his death, Davies anonymously gave the Fire District $1,000 for this fund after being awarded the Carnegie Hero Fund award for his part in the rescue of a woman from a house fire in Golden Valley.
Following his death, Davies' girlfriend, Earlene Mahar, and his family partnered with the Golden Valley Fire District to make his anonymous donation public and to establish the fund to help those needing financial help to get smoke alarms.
Anyone who wants to support the fund can call GVFD at (928) 565-3479 or visit the administrative offices at 3327 N. Mayer Road.
