Daylight Saving Time

Milford Township Fire department urge families to set your clocks ahead one hour and change batteries in your smoke detector so you don’t become a statistic. Other suggestions for households include replacing alarm batteries when they “chirp” (signaling a low battery), test smoke detectors monthly, develop a fire evacuation plan including at least two escape routes, have charged fire extinguishers installed in or near the kitchen, and perform a fire prevention “house cleaning” to eliminate fire hazards.

As a reminder, do these things every six (6) months when you reset your clocks:

Check and replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms.

Replace any smoke alarms older than ten years. Replace any CO alarms older than five years.

Prepare a disaster supply kit for your house (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets).

Once you’ve created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents (including testing/replacing flashlight batteries).

It’s a good idea to carry a car-emergency kit in your car year-round, but be sure to add cold weather gear to your general car-emergency kit each fall. (Having a separate duffle/gear bag clearly marked “Cold Gear” specifically for your cold weather emergency gear makes it easy to add or take out of the car, seasonally.)

Check home and outbuilding storage areas for hazardous materials. Discard, properly, any which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. Move any which are within reach of kids or pets.

Check and discard expired medications - those dates really DO have meaning some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging.

Engine 57 responded and was given the orders to pull a hand line and make entry into the garage to fight the fire. Companies made a quick knock on the fire and were in service for about 4 hours. Thank you to mutual aid companies or Trumbauersville (58), Richland Township (56), Pennsburg (Montgomery 65), East Greenville ( Montgomery 38), Lower Milford (Lehigh 13).
