A weekend of installing smoke detectors in April has paid off for the Hagerstown Fire Department and the Wesel Boulevard Lowe's store.
The partnership between Lowe's and the fire department won the Lowe's Home Centers Inc. regional prize.
In winning, the local store beat out about 80 other stores from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Virginia, said co-manager Tom Wynkoop.
"We had a plan that was pretty well put together," he said. "It was a real good team effort. People in the community really treated us well."
