Greetings from the membership at Carrsville VFD!   Sorry it has taken so long to update my column.    Every time I think I can sit down and write an update, something always seems to come up!    We are very excited to announce that our new Tanker should be in the station within the next 5 to 7 days!   If you are in the area, please stop by and take a look!    We are proud to add this 2016 Pierce/Kenworth tanker to our fleet.   With this truck, we upped our water supplied by the tanker from 1800 gallons to 3000 gallons.   This tanker will be fully funded by donations from the community.    As you may know, we have been budgeting for a replacement tanker in the County budget for the last 4 years.   As the years passed, the tanker kept getting bumped out due to financial hardships the County faced.   We were faced with spending thousands of dollars on upgrades, rebuilding and maintenance or order a new truck.  We decided that if we spent a lot of money on the old truck, we would still have a 25-year-old truck.   We opted to put the money into a new truck.   Over the coming years, we will be making annual payments to retire the debt.    We hope when members ask for support for dinners, bbq’s and other fund raisers you will help out.   This is all done for our community!    Because of our efforts, we were able to lower the ISO rating for our community.   This means you will be spending less on homeowner’s insurance.    By working together, we all benefit!    We look forward to continue serving you for many years to come!

Here are some other fall fire safety tips that you should keep in mind:

  • If you’re planning to burn some candles to give your house a cozy fall vibe, don’t forget to blow them out when you leave the room or go to bed. Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn. You should always use candle holders that are sturdy and won’t tip over. Better yet, use flameless candles in your home. They look and smell like real candles.
  • Have a professional inspect and clean your fireplace, chimney, furnace as well as your coal and wood stoves. You should not burn coal in your wood-burning stove, unless it was designed to burn wood and coal. Never burn trash in your wood-burning stove because it could start a fire in the chimney. You should not use a flammable liquid to start a fire in your fireplace.
  • Keep all flammable materials away from your furnace, including clothing, paint products, toxic materials, cardboard and paper.
  • If you use a space heater, be sure it’s on a hard, level and nonflammable surface such as ceramic tile floor. Don’t place it on a rug, carpet or near bedding or drapes.
  • Learn the outdoor burning regulations in your area, and don’t burn leaves and other outdoor debris illegally.
  • Never park your vehicle over a pile of leaves because the heat from the catalytic converter or exhaust system can ignite the leaves.
  • Don’t store flammable liquids, including any unused fuel in a gas can, inside your home or in an attached garage or shed. Store this material away from your home and drain excess fuel out of the container before storing it to prevent accidental fires from escaping fuel vapors.
  • Remove fuel from lawn mowers before you store them for the winter.
  • If trees or branches aren’t clear of power lines, you should contact the utility company.

Following these fire prevention tips will help you reduce the likelihood that your family will experience a fire. It’s a good idea to review these tips with your family every fall.
