Fire Prevention

On Wednesday October 2 2019 The Haworth Fire Department visited The Valley road school. Chief Conner and firefighter Polbos reviewed fire safety and awarness with one of the classes. The class was well behaved and had a ton of questions.

Be a fire safety expert:   
      Create a map of your home showing where the exits may be in  case of a fire
    Agree on a “safe spot” with your family in case there is an  emergency exit.
                      Check to be sure that you have fire extinguishers and  batteries in your fire detectors
Practice the “Stop, Drop, and Roll” strategy.                                                 
              Practice knowing your address and telephone number in case  of an emergency

History of Memorial Day

 

Memorial Day, as Decoration Day gradually came to be known, originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But during World War I the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars. For decades, Memorial Day continued to be observed on May 30, the date Logan had selected for the first Decoration Day. But in 1968 Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees; the change went into effect in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.
