Fifteenth Annual Toy Drive Provides Happy HolidaysEvent held at Fenton Wal-Mart

January 2, 2014

The 15th Annual Land of the Giants toy drive was held Saturday, December 7th. Each year, the Saline Valley Fire Protection District teams up with The Land Of The Giants Truck Club, WIL FM 92.3 and the Antonia Fire Protection District to collect money and toys for families less fortunate in the area.

 

This year’s event featured a truck show, Fire Truck displays, the BIGFOOT Monster Truck, the Shriners, a BBQ and also an appearance by Fred Bird.

 

The displays were held in the parking lot, while truck club members and firefighters were at the entrance to the Walmart passing out cards with a list needed items, and accepted donations of money and toys.

 

After the drive, the donations were sorted and distributed by the Fire Districts and other organizations to families in need. This year we were able to help 41 children have a merry Christmas!

 

Thank you to all of the event supporters!

Winter Weather SafetyRecord Cold Forecasted, Here Are Some Tips To Staying Safe

January 2, 2014

Over the next several days, record low temperatures are forecasted to move into our area, especially during late evening to early morning hours. In addition, snow is also being forecasted, so please take a moment to consider these safety tips to keep your home and family safe!

Heating and Carbon Monoxide

 

1) Ensure smoke and CO detectors are working

 

2) Follow manufacturer recommendations for clearances of space heaters

 

3) Never run kerosene, propane or other types of fuel burning devices inside your home or without proper ventilation

 

4) Never use the gas burning stoves to help augment home heat

 

5) The Saline Valley Fire Stations are available as warming stations for those in need, please contact our office for details

 

6) Store fire place ashes in a metal container and dispose of away from any structure - Ashes can hold heat up to seven days under the right conditions

 

7) Take care not to overload electrical outlets when plugging in heaters or electric blankets

Text Box: Outdoor Safety

1) Remember to stay hydrated when engaging in outdoor activities - your body still loses fluids that you may not notice while bundled up. 

2) Have your child wear a helmet when engaging in activities such as sledding and ice skating

3) Never skate or walk on iced over lakes or ponds if you’ve never been trained or are familiar with ice on bodies of water. - Enjoy “frozen pond” related activities at a recreation center

4) In the event someone has fallen through the ice, call 911 immediately , do not enter the water or go on the ice yourself

5) When driving on snowy or icy roads, give your self extra travel time and slow down. 

6) When approaching accident scenes, give emergency workers a wide berth and room to work!
