It is that time of year again……Fire Prevention Week! This years theme is “Don’t Wait Check the Date”, which is in reference to checking the date of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Fire Departments reccomend replacing your detectors with in 10 years of the manufacturing dates. The Valhalla Fire Department will be visiting local schools and businesses to discuss about fire prevention and ways to make everyone safe. Crews will teach about the “Stop, Drop, and Roll” technique as well as smoke detector use. Members also inform residents on how to use fire extinguishers on fires. There will also be an Open House on Tuesday October 11th starting at 6PM at our firehouses on 14 Columbus Ave and 1 Entrance Way. Please stop by and say hello to our firefighters. There will be fire prevention literature, goodies, free hot dogs, soda and water. So come on down and check out the fire houses!
