Marion Township Fire Fighters will be out canvassing areas within the fire district throughout the month of October. Times for the activities will be Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm and 3pm. The fire fighters will be passing out fire safety literature and giving you the opportunity for them to check the operation of our existing smoke detector.
Throughout the United States people are killed by fire every year. Many of the deaths could have been prevented with a simple working smoke detector and having an escape plan. Please check your detectors and draw an escape plan to review with your family members.
As the fall season is here, remember before starting a fire in your fire place to clean and inspect it for cracks and blockages. Birds and other animals may have nested in the flue.
Thank you and be safe,
Chief Ben Meddles
