Smoke Detectors, Leaf Reminder

Muirfielders! It is that time of year when all over the country we are reminded to change the batteries in our smoke detectors. Not only that, but I've learned that these detectors age out and should be replaced after 10 years anyway, even if a test shows the alarm still functions. What's more, it is recommended that bedroom doors be kept closed to isolate smoke and flames. So read the below, sent by one our fire department staff just today, and let's all be safe:

Smoke alarms are a key part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.


Leaf Reminder

One extra reminder from the City of Dublin, when raking leaves to the curb for the City to vacuum up, please keep them on your grass, and do not rake into the street. There they get washed into the storm sewer system, silting up Muirfield ponds and possibly causing clogs. Grass may yellow a bit, but it springs back.
