Fire Prevention Week 2016

Share via email

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of our three-year effort to educate the public about basic but essential elements of smoke alarm safety.

Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.

It is with great sadness that Eagle – Matt Lee Fire Company No1 announces the passing of 53 year member Lewis Schumacher. Lew was proud member of EML serving as Treasurer for the Company for 20 years and “in house historian” for most of his time with us.
Along with his duties at the Fire Company, Lew was one of Community Emergency Corps Charter Members, bringing EMS services to Ballston Spa and surrounding communities. It is with an extremely heavy heart, but immense pride in his service that we share our condolences with Lew’s wife Carole and his entire family. Men like Lew are hard to find but even harder to loose. Rest in peace Lew, we shall see you on the other side.
