This week's safety tip:
When winds are high, so are fire dangers. Stage 1 fire restrictions remain in effect in Castle Rock, which restrict open burning and use of fireworks. In addition, the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department reminds us to carefully dispose of cigarettes.
Never toss a cigarette out the window. Also, please never use your planter as an ashtray. The potting soil contains oxidizers and flammable materials that can accelerate fire. Always use an approved ashtray to put out cigarettes.
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about fire dangers. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming.
