CHANGE YOUR CLOCK, CHANGE THE BATTERIES - Now that you have changed your clocks for daylight savings, it is time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. More than 3,000 people die in home fires each year in the United States; most of whom are in homes without a working smoke alarm. A working, properly installed smoke alarm lowers your chances of dying in a fire. If you need assistance changing batteries or need smoke detectors installed, the Longmont Fire Department can help with that. Call (303) 651-8437.

WINTER SAFETY TIPS FROM FEMA - The United States Fire Administration (USFA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are working together to remind everyone that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season. This is due in part to an increase in cooking and heating fires. Holiday decorations and winter storms that can interrupt electrical service and cause people to turn to alternative heating sources also contribute to the increased risk of fire in winter. Winter fires can be prevented! The following fire safety tips can help you maintain a fire-safe home this winter season.

INFORMATION REGARDING UPDATES TO OUTDOOR EMERGENCY SIRENS IN LONGMONT
MARCH 21, 2012 - RESIDENTS NOT LIKELY TO NEED WATER LINE INSURANCE - Longmont residents are receiving a form letter from a company called American Water Resources with an offer to purchase insurance on the water service lines entering their homes. The city has received several calls from residents about this solicitation in the past few days. This company is not associated with the city and is neither sponsoring nor encouraging the practice of purchasing this insurance. Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of the water service line from their property line to their house foundation. American Water Resources is a private company selling insurance that will cover certain repair costs on this portion of the water service line. Residents should know it is rare that a water service line needs the type of repair described in this letter. For more information call Longmont Water Utilities at 303-651-8468.
