During the holiday season remember to practice fire safety within your homes and make sure you have working smoke detectors. Be safe with fireworks and ensure they are properly extinguished before disposing of them. Ensure turkeys are completely thawed before attempting to fry them.

Merry Christmas to all from Ward 6 Fire Protection Dist. #1.
