MONTCLAIR, NJ - The annual 'Day of Service' event hosted by the Montclair Fire Department and Montclair State University's Center for Student Involvement is growing larger each year. 

Volunteers accompanied firefighters into local homes and businesses to deliver nearly 1000 packets of fire prevention literature throughout Montclair. The reach was expanded this year since there were many more volunteers. Firefighters also take this opportunity to remind residents to check the batteries on smoke detectors. Firefighters also install and check smoke detectors for residents and businesses, as part of this visit.

In recognition of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr holiday, the 'Day of Service' is a growing national initiative to engage the community in helping others in their community and beyond. According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, the 'Day of Service' initiative is a way to transform Dr. King’s life and teachings into community service that helps empower and strengthen local communities.

Americans across the country, and in Montclair particularly, take an opportunity to put this day into action to serve their neighbors and communities. 

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, which is the President's national call to service initiative that calls for Americans to collaborate to 'provide solutions to our most pressing national problems'.
