New carbon monoxide detectors are on the way for Perth East.

On Tuesday, Union Gas presented a cheque for $1000 to the Perth East Fire Department for the purchase of the detectors which will be distributed to members of the community.

The Perth East Fire Department has had a Carbon Monoxide Program in place since 2014.

This year, the Township of Perth East and Union Gas has expanded natural gas services to the areas of Perth East, Milverton, Rostock, and Wartburg.
