Messages from the Eaton’s Neck Fire Department
By Rich Baer
The number to call in case of a fire or medical emergency is 757 5700!
Do not hesitate to call.
Trained volunteers will respond to your call for help.
The fire department continues its
search for new members to fill the open slots in the
department. Please consider joining the department
and serving your neighbors in our small unique
community. Training and personal equipment are
provided at no cost and the support and guidance of
veteran members will seamlessly make your
membership an easy process. Call First Assistant
Chief Richard Rizzuti at 261-4910 for further
Two important safety issues.
CO poisoning from non
fire-related incidents. Carbon Monoxide can be
produced from items such as generators, car engines,
fireplaces, charcoal grills, kerosene heaters and
furnaces. CO detectors should be placed outside each
sleeping area and on each level of the home.
The second safety issue is a
product named Stove top firestop. This is a fire
suppression can filled with bicarbonate of soda
which is opened by a heat sensitive actuator. If a
pot catches fire on the stove the heat from the fire
activates the firestop attached to the range hood.
Two cans protect one stovetop. The cans attach to
range hoods or microwaves with magnets.
Most home fires start in the
kitchen, and this product selling for $50-75 may be
cheap insurance for preventing fires that could grow
to be much larger and causing more damage. Google
the name Stovetop Firestop for more information.
The fire department is conducting
its 2015 fund drive at this time. The department
extends its thanks to the residents who have
provided support for the volunteers who answer
emergency calls all year.
Please remember them at this time. Thank you
again for your support
Yours for fire safety, Rich Baer
