To the Times of Ti:
The Hague firemen join other departments throughout the nation in encouraging all of our residents to check their homes and properties to be sure that everything is operating in a safe and secure manner. Now is a good time to check out holiday decorations before putting them up to make sure that no damage has occured while in storage.
There were 12 fire and EMS calls in September including coverage brought about by Irene using 493 volunteer and 5 EMT hours.
Daylight saving time falls back on Nov. 6. It's a good time to to change batteries in your smoke detectors and check CO detectors.
Everyone have a happy and safe Halloween. I'll be thinking of you from a trout stream somewhere in Montana or points south.
