Carbon Monoxide Tips
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
From the Middletown Fire Protection District
 
Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas, but, being colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating, it is very hard to detect. Carbon Monoxide is a product of incomplete combustion of gasoline, natural gas and propane or improper ventilation of these gases.  Symptoms may include headaches and flu like effects; larger exposures can lead to significant toxicity of the central nervous system. (you may have trouble keeping your balance or walking). Prolonged exposure can even cause death.  There is only one way to detect carbon monoxide and that is with a UL listed detector.  There are several of these available to choose from at your local retail stores.  The electric with battery backup and digital read out is one of the most preferred.
 
For more information you can contact Captain Dave Dittmer at 502-245-7555 or ddittmer@mfpd.org

Winter Plan
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
 
Winter weather has officially graced all our doorsteps. The HOA Board just wanted to give you some information regarding our Snow Removal Plan.
 
While maintenance of the roads within Forest Springs is the responsibility of Louisville Metro government, neighborhood roads are no longer part of Metro’s snow and ice removal plan. A few years ago, the HOA determined that it was in the best interest of Forest Springs residents to pay for limited private snow removal and salting.
