We are now officially in the start of the fall season and with that comes falling leaves and shorter cooler days ahead.
One thing I do this time of year is changing the batteries in the smoke detectors in my home. Every home should have smoke alarms in them; it’s a small effort to install that could save your life or someone you care about.
I’d like to let everyone in the Village of Florida know that the Florida Fire Department along with the American Red Cross will be installing free smoke alarms on Sun., Sept. 30 within the Florida Fire District.
To schedule an appointment, call 845-673-1198 or visit SoundtheAlarm.org/MNYN.
