Just in time for the holiday season, we have some new Fire Department employees to welcome! Beau Pullin, Cody Albert, and Luke Frantz have joined the ranks as firefighters. They are so new that we do not even have pictures to include! They have a training academy that they must complete, and they should be on the line by January 1, 2021. They will be working days and will be learning firefighting skills over the next several weeks.
As the time change is upon us, it is always a good time to remember to check the batteries in the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in your home. Making sure that they are working is critical to ensure that they will alarm in the event of danger. We also recommend using canned air (available at office supply stores) to blow out all the dust and cobwebs that may build up inside them. This helps to avoid false alarms and the frustration that can accompany them. That is all from the Fire Department, and until next month, stay safe!
