Please check your Detectors and Fire Extinguishers

As we are heading into Fire Prevention Week (3-9 Oct) in two weeks, please check your safety equipment in your coaches. Fire extinguisher, Smoke Detector, and CO Detector should all be checked for proper operation and batteries replaced as applicable.

I hope this reminder prevents our club from having to deal with this type of tragedy :
HORNTOWN, Va.- One man is dead after an early Friday fire that occurred at the Trails End Campground in Horntown, Accomack County.
New Church Volunteer Fire Chief Danny Outten said the call came in at 5:05 a.m. Responding firefighters found a 28-foot camper and the building next to it fully involved. Once the flames were extinguished, the body of a man was found inside.
The name of the victim- who Outten said was the owner of the camper- has not yet been released. There is no word yet on the cause of the blaze. The Virginia State Police Arson Unit is investigating the incident.

Fire Extinguisher Experience

Wife and I decided to replace our extinguisher and will replace the smoke/CO detector very soon.

Figured I would test the fire extinguisher since it was a 1988 model and I figured the compression/pressure would be low. Phhhtttt! That dadburned thing was FULL of pressure! It really pumped out the stuff and lasted a good 20 to 30 seconds! White powder everywhere (outside, mind you)! I wished I videotaped it!

Still glad we got a new one - at least a piece of mind knowing it is an updated piece of equipment!
