Notices and Alerts
With Christmas fast approaching please be safe with your tree and lights. Make sure you smoke detectors are working.
Smoke detectors Save Lives!
Most home fire fatalities occur at night while people are asleep. If a fire occurs in your home, your chances of survival are increased by 50% if smoke detectors are present and working.
What do I do?
There are 2 things that you need to do:
1) Purchase, install, and maintain smoke detectors in your home.
2) Develop and practice a home escape plan with your family
During freezing weather Salvation Army will be open as a warming center from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m or longer as needed.
With winter approaching fast everyone be careful with your fireplace and space heaters. Be prepared for the slick roads they will be upon us before you know it. So stay safe.
Everyone watch out for the school buses and the kids crossing the roads. Slow down and be careful.
