During this period of social distancing let's not forget about fire safety. With increased demands remember not to overload electrical sockets and use quality UL rated surge protectors. Keep clothes dryers, hoses and vents free of lint. Check your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector batteries. Never leave your cooking, either inside or outside, unattended. Simple steps can make a big difference. Stay safe. ... See MoreSee Less

Please also remember that if you have had a fever and treated it with aspirin or ibuprofen and no longer have a fever the answer is yes you have had a fever. Dispatch will ask everyone that calls these questions. please answer all of them so that we can protect ourselves when coming to your home.
