Designer Bag Bingo
After the success of last year's Designer Bag Bingo many people asked if we are going to have it again this year. The answer is YES! This year's event is scheduled for Saturday October 3rd and will be held at our Main Street Firehouse. Put the date in your calendar and talk to any of our members about how to purchase tickets or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance for your support!
Summer Fire Safety
During days of extreme heat you are reminded to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, check on the elderly and those without air conditioners and also make sure all outdoor animals have fresh water. Those with respiratory issues should also take precaution on hot humid days because they usually have air quality warnings associated with them.
Summer fire season is upon us. We would like to remind everyone that open, uncontrolled backyard fires are illegal. Also make sure your BBQ grills are in proper working order and far enough away from any structures to prevent radiant heat from lighting anything on fire.
-In 2012, 16,900 patients went to emergency rooms because of injuries involving grills.
-One of every six (16%) home structure fires in which grills were involved in ignition, something that could catch fire was too close to the grill.
-Overall, leaks or breaks were factors in one of every five reported grill fires.
-Gas grills contribute to a higher number of home fires overall than their charcoal counterparts.
