PLA­CEN­TIA TALKS SMOKE ALARMS — Fire Preven­tion Week is Oc­to­ber 5-11, 2014. The theme this year is “Work­ing smoke alarms save lives: Test yours ev­ery month.” Did you know that many peo­ple don’t test their smoke alarms as of­ten as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need work­ing smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Pla­cen­tia Mayor Wayne Power re­cently joined mem­bers of the Pla­cen­tia Fire Depart­ment to sign the Fire Preven­tion Week procla­ma­tion. Through­out the week mem­bers of the depart­ment will be vis­it­ing schools and other venues to pro­mote fire safety and fire preven­tion. Those on hand for the pre­sen­ta­tion were, front (l-r) Pla­cen­tia Mayor Wayne D. Power and fire chief Wayne W. Power; back — Val Ca­reen, Des Line­han, cap­tain Rod­ney Cooney, Danny Walsh, cap­tain Richard McGrath, Tyler Bar­ron, Jamie Bixby and Sparky the fire dog. — Sub­mit­ted by Fire Chief Wayne Power Sr.
