Area fire departments educate youth during Fire Prevention Month

October is Fire Prevention Month and area fire departments used this as an opportunity to educate local elementary schools about fire prevention and fire safety.

At RC Waters Elementary in Oak Harbor, Carroll Township Fire Department put together a day of learning for the third graders that consisted of hands-on stations. One of the stations gave the students an opportunity to talk with the State Highway Patrol and another station was manned by Materion and Ottawa County EMA where students learned about assisting in disaster. The Lucas County Mobile firehouse gave students the experience of getting out of a building using the “stay low and go” technique. Students also used and tried on fire safety equipment.


Veterans Park and Issue 6

I would like to say to Roger Smith, your letter in the Sandusky Register (10-6-14) was the best ever, you told it like it was, and I remember the day very well.

It was early one morning in 1998 when our administration had heavy equipment moved in on the north end of the Veterans Park and with only a few knowing about it began removing the top soil as the first step into making a parking lot for our business people.

Someone at the American Legion called the VFW and after a long hard fight they saved the Veterans Park from being a parking lot.
