    One of the Nation's Leading Fire & EMS Safety Seminars is coming to:
    Hamlin Fire & Rescue Company, 582 Hamlin Way, Hamlin PA 18427
    Each year, nearly 25 % of firefighter and EMS fatalities are the result of motor vehicle crashes, yet few agencies train their members on the safe operation of emergency apparatus and personal vehicles. The "Drive to Survive" training program is designed to teach members that no matter how long they have been driving, or how "good" they think they are, there are limits to the safe operation of an emergency apparatus or personal vehicle. Using the same techniques used by crash investigators, this class is designed to provide a better understanding of important topics that are essential for safe driving. Class cost is $35.00 per person. Each agency will be billed after the class based on the number of members who attend.

  • Sun Nov 4 2018 02:00 - Change Your Clock, Change Your BatteriesTM
    Change Your Clock, Change Your Batteries
    It's that time of year again! Change Your Clock, Change Your BatteriesTM!
    Every fall, Energizer works to remind people of the simple, life-saving habit of changing and testing the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when setting the clocks back for daylight saving time.
    The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. This reinforces how important it is to take this time each year to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Energizer would like to remind you of the importance of batteries not only in smoke alarms, but also the full range of devices that help keep us safe, secure and comfortable in our homes.
    Home safety and security has evolved beyond smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Many families rely on other home devices connected to the Internet or their smartphones, also known as the Internet of Things, to enhance safety and security. Energizer provides smart energy for smart devices with battery options across our portfolio that power these connected home devices.
    Energizer is committed to educating you about home safety. Partnering with retailers and fire stations across the country, we want to remind you to change your batteries in all of your connected home devices when you change your clocks back for Daylight Saving Time.
    You can also use social media to help spread the word and remind friends and family to change the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, along with all of their connected home devices on November 4. Make sure to follow Energizer® on Facebook to get tips and information about home and fire safety during October.
