CHIEF

NOVEMBER CHIEF'S CORNER

 

Wow, October sure seemed to fly by quickly. Just like that it’s November already. What a strange year we have had weather wise. Many of the trees still have yet to drop their leaves and we have already seen very light snow. With that being said just a reminder, it is illegal to burn leaves within the village. In the townships you are required to acquire a burning permit at no cost and call your fire into the dodge county dispatch center. Also remember this time of year, weather can change very rapidly and wind can change directions. Please keep this in mind at all times.

 

The Reeseville Fire Department would like to thank everyone who attended our busy day on October 14, 2018 when we held the pancake breakfast in the morning and Bingo that night. And a very special thanks to all the businesses that donated to our raffle this year and some of the food items. It was a very successful fire prevention breakfast this year thanks to a few fire department members and the Reeseville Fire Department Auxiliary.

 

November 4, 2018 is the day that daylight savings time ends. That means time to replace batteries in those smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors (CO). This is very important for your safety. Don’t think it won’t happen to you or you can put it off until next week next month etc. It happens more often than you think. It doesn’t make the news if it isn’t fatal. A family was saved by their carbon monoxide detector this year right in our coverage area. Had they not been alerted by their carbon monoxide detector the outcome would have been very different and much worse for the family. Please take this warning to heart and change those batteries and test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Also, with that, those furnaces and all heat sources will be turning on so please make sure they are working properly and the vents are free and clear of debris to ensure proper venting of the fumes.

 

November 11, 2018 will be Bingo at the Reeseville Community Center. Bingo has been going over very well and we really appreciate the support we have received from the community and the feedback we have been getting. It has been a lot of fun watching Bingo grow and turn into something. Everyone that has attended says what a good time they had and that they did not realize Bingo was so fun for all ages. 

Progressive still has not been won and is at $1175.00 and we will call 52 balls. Please pass the word along and invite your friends down to check it out.

 

If you would like to become a member of our very close family here at the Reeseville Fire Department or just see what goes on please feel free to stop by the station on the first, third, or fourth Monday of the month around 6:30 pm and see what goes on or call or text 920-210-2510, email reesfd@netwurx.net or find us on Facebook at Reeseville Fire Department.

Firefighter Joke of the Month

Two firefighters were going deer hunting and hired a pilot to take them way back into the forest. After the hunt, the pilot returned and saw that they shot six deer. "The plane won't carry six deer, you'll have to leave two of them," said the pilot. Unwilling to leave their deer, the firefighters said "We got six on the plane last year." The pilot gave in, and just five minutes after takeoff the plane crashed into the forest. Lucky to be alive, one of the firefighters said, "Any idea where we are?" The second firefighter said, "Yeah, right about where our plane went down last year."
