Message for Code Red Emergency Notification Subscribers
Posted on Aug 31st, 2016
From Councilman Glen Stuckel's August 30, 2016 eNewsletter:
 
The Code Red emergency notification system many of you used recently ceased providing communications to Louisville subscribers. Current subscribers of that system will need to register at www.smart911.com for the new emergency notification system called LENSAlert.

In addition to receiving emergency notifications, individuals can use this web site to create a profile for themselves and their household to include any information they want first responders to know in the event of an emergency. When individuals make an emergency call, their safety profile is automatically displayed to the 911 call taker, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. Information about medical history, allergies to medications, number of residents in the home, and even a picture of the family dog can be added to this profile.
Smoke Detectors
Posted on Aug 31st, 2016
From Middletown Fire Protection District:
 
We all have heard the saying “Change your Clock Change your Battery”.  Did you know that smoke detectors have an expiration date, the next time you change your battery on your detectors look for a date on the bottom of the detector.  Most all detectors have a ten year recommendation for replacement.

You probably know most thieves gain entry to your home through your front door. But, did you know the second most used method is through a first floor window? Almost 10%of thieves enter through the garage! LMPD's 8th Division has offered some tips to help you better protect your home from theft.
 
Lock all windows and doors (don’t forget that interior garage door!)
Turn on exterior lights
Install deadbolts to all entry doors if possible
Trim trees and bushes away from windows
Remove objects in your yard that could be used to gain entry (tools, ladders, bricks, etc.)
Get to know your neighbors

Theft from vehicles is another area where citizens can make things harder for would-be criminals.
 
Make sure all vehicle windows are up and doors are locked
Do not leave your vehicle running unattended
Park in your garage if possible
Purses, wallets, cell phones, guns, and GPS systems are prime targets and should not be left in your vehicle
Do not hide a key in your car or under the hood
If you must keep items you have purchased in your vehicle, place them in the trunk

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.

From Chief Jeffrey Riddle, Middletown Fire Protection District
 
Did you know that it is a State law that all school systems must have fire drills?  They conduct fire drills to ensure that every student knows a primary and a secondary route to exit the building.  After exiting the building the teachers make sure that all of the students are accounted for.
