A reminder of a few things about safety: First, if you call 911 on a cell phone, be prepared to give an accurate location. not all cell phones are tied into the Enhanced 911 system so the call may be routed to State Police. The operator will not know your location (as they would on a land line phone) so you must be prepared to give them this information. Second, please have working smoke detectors on all levels of your home, make sure the batteries (if battery powered) are good and never disable them. No one disputes that smoke detectors save lives-your life is worth any trouble required to maintain these devices. And lastly, consider installing carbon monoxide detectors. We have had some “close calls” this past year with carbon monoxide poisoning which could have been avoided by these types of detectors. As with smoke detectors, they can be invaluable to you and your family’s safety.
In closing, we are always looking for new members to staff our various operations. Whether you have an interest in the Fire Department or our EMS Division, we’d like to speak with you. We are truly neighbors helping neighbors, it’s exciting and rewarding. Come by on Monday evenings and see what a Fire/EMS operation is like-you may stay for a lifetime!
