Two recent events have firefighters issuing some reminders that could save your life. First, make sure you wear a life jacket if you’re on the water, no matter how warm the air temperature is or how good of a swimmer you think you are.
Chief Scott Frandsen says you should also install a carbon monoxide detector. The Mid-County District recently responded to a near fatal incident in which the carbon monoxide came from an unexpected source.
If you have a CO detector, don’t ignore it when it goes off. If you need a smoke detector, call your fire district. Mid-County provides and installs them free of charge.
