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.
