The Forestville Firefighters Association will be hosting the annual Forestville Community Easter Egg Hunt. The event is April 4th beginning at 10AM at the Forestville Youth Park. There will be refreshments for the children. Please bring your own basket. The Easter Bunny will be there along with fire engines for all the kids to enjoy.
We will be holding our annual coloring contest for children aged 4-12 with fun prizes for all age groups! To pick up an entry please stop by the firehouse, or they will also be available at the grade school. All entries must be turned in by April 1st, and winners will be announced after the Easter Egg hunt. We hope to see you there.
We respond for fires in clothes dryers... and February was no exception. They are caused by a buildup of lint underneath the drum or in the vent. Every year, more than 16,000 fires are sparked by dryers. That accounts for almost 5% of all house fires! While the lint screen captures most of the lint, smaller particles pass through and build up on the bottom of the dryer... and the dryer duct vent. Most people don’t realize that the area underneath the drum is open to the air flow and lint collects here even faster than it collects in the dryer duct. Over time, enough collects to catch fire due to the heating element... whether gas or electric. Check your owner’s manual about the best way to access this area and clean it out (make sure you unplug the dryer first). Also make sure that the dryer duct vent is cleaned regularly – this will save money as clothes will dry faster.
