December Chiefs’ Corner

Well this year seems to have flown right by us. Hoping everyone had a good thanksgiving, and a safe, successful deer hunt, if you do that. Just a reminder I hope everyone has checked the batteries, and operation of their carbon monoxide detectors. Don’t run heaters meant to be operated in unsealed buildings like garages in the living areas of your home. All fuel burning heaters and fireplaces need to be properly vented to the outside. This is a major cause of carbon monoxide poisoning this time of year. Auxiliary electric heaters are not made to be run off of an extension cord, or power strip. Make sure they are plugged directly into a properly grounded outlet, are in proper working order, clean, and free of debris. The heater should not be sitting on, or near fabrics, such as carpeting, curtains, or anything else that is easily flammable. Always keep them out of reach of children and pets, they can easily tip over, and cause a fire. Along those same lines is your dehumidifier. They have been making the news a lot lately, and have caused many house fires throughout the United States. They also cannot be run off of extension cords, or power strips, and need to be plugged directly into a properly grounded, and installed outlet. Cleanliness on your dehumidifier is extremely important. If not properly maintained, and kept clean they can overheat and cause a fire. Also, I would recommend doing a quick search on the internet to see if your make and model falls into the massive recall going on throughout the U.S.

It’s that time of year again that our winter wonderland will be upon us. We all know what that means snow and ice-covered roads. Safe and courteous driving is a must. Allow extra time to reach your destination. Four-wheel and or all-wheel drive does not mean you can go faster on snow or ice. It will still take you just as long to slow down as without it. Driving too fast for conditions is a traffic violation, and you can be ticketed for doing so. It greatly increases the chances of a runoff, skid, crash, or worse a traffic fatality. I encourage everyone to be prepared in the event of a runoff. A few simple steps can help in the instance that something does occur this winter. Have your cell phone with you with a full battery to call for help. Have your vehicle battery and charging system in your vehicle checked to be sure you don’t get stranded due to something as simple as a dead battery. Try and make sure you have good tires on your vehicle, and do a quick walk around before heading out as tires tend to lose air in the winter when it’s cold very easily. Also keep your gas tank full if possible to prevent fuel system problems in case you do get stranded. Lastly pack an emergency kit with a windshield scraper, flashlight with extra batteries, water, small snack like foods, matches, small candles, blankets, hat, socks, gloves, first aid kit, any necessary medications, booster cables, emergency flares or reflectors, and cell phone charging power pack to recharge your cellphone. In the event you do run off the road immediately make sure everyone in the vehicle is ok and instruct them not to get out. Immediately call 911 and let them know your location and condition of everyone involved in the incident. They will send help as soon as possible. It is not safe for anyone to try and free the vehicle yourself leave that to the trained tow truck drivers. And remember to just relax. Help is on the way. Run your car for 10-15 minutes every hour with a window cracked to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and to keep a small amount of heat in the vehicle. The exhaust system may be leaking due to the impact or be plugged with snow.

Help us spread the word!!! Sunday December 10th RFD will be having BINGO at the Reeseville Community Center. Bingo is not just for the older folks. We have received very positive comments from a few of the younger generations that have tried it for the first time ever and stated they didn’t know how fun it really was until now and can't wait to play again! We thank everyone for attending. Prices for BINGO will be listed at the door. Doors will open at 4:00pm to allow time for everyone to get a snack and get situated before the fun begins. BINGO will start at 5:30pm. There will be food and refreshments served by the Reeseville Community Center, prices will be posted at the Community Center. Bring your wife down, let her play some BINGO while you, relax, watch some Sunday night football, and enjoy some social time and drinks at the bar with friends and neighbors of the community. We have put a lot of time, and efforts into making this community event happen; we hope to see you there. We will be hosting BINGO once a month, on the second Sunday of the month the dates are set as; Sunday, January 14th, February 11th, March 11th, and April 8th, 2018 same time same place.

For an application, any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday around 6:30.
