Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up - January 2017
Happy New Year! We hope you have a very safe and prosperous year.
Now is the time to make your New Year’s resolutions. Here are some suggestions. Check the smoke detector every month, replace the smoke detector if it is over 10 years old; mark your calendar, or better yet, put a reminder in your computer or smart phone. Purchase a fire extinguisher and inspect it regularly to assure the gauge is in the “green”. Have a certified company clean your home heating unit. Do not store chemicals/cleaners where kids can reach, and never mix products. Never burn anything other than logs in your fireplace. If you use wood, have the chimney cleaned every few years. Never use gasoline or other flammable liquids as a cleaner. Use ladders safely, never work off the top of a step ladder. Repair electrical problems immediately. Candles – use a large plate, never place near anything, always extinguish when you leave. Never allow yourself to leaving cooking unattended. Prevention is the key word!
Station 63 on Imperial Valley Drive construction is on schedule and we believe it will be turned over to us on March 1, 2017. We will be planning a dedication ceremony most likely in April. Thank you for your support.
