EASTON, Conn. Since the tragic Christmas Day fire in Stamford, the emergency officials in Easton have been inundated with phone calls from residents looking for fire safety advice in the home. In response to those queries, the fire department will have a Vital Fire Safety seminar March 14.
The seminar will discuss the meaning of a flashover, how carbon monoxide affects the brain, how remembering three words can help keep you safe in a fire and how many minutes you have to escape when you hear a fire alarm.
Vital Fire Safety will be from 7-9 p.m. at the Easton Public Library , 691 Morehouse Road. Presenters will include Easton Volunteer Fire Company First Assistant Chief Steve Waugh and Deputy Fire Marshal Lucy Crossman. There is no charge for the seminar, and there will be a free raffle of fire safety items donated by local merchants.
Please call the library at 203-268-0134 for reservations. Because the subject matter is aimed at an adult audience, no young children please.
