Marcia Schultz UPDATESIt is with deep sadness and sorrow that the Warren Volunteer
Fire Company reports the passing of current Ambulance Chief Marcia Schultz.
A 14 year member of the company, Marcia has served as
Ambulance Chief for the last four years.
As an EMS Instructor, she has touched the lives of
many here in the Northwest corner.
Marcia's dedication to community service, and ever present
smile will be deeply missed.
"The celebration of Marcia’s life will be January 5th at 10:00 AM here in Warren at the Congregational Church with a reception afterwards at the parish hall. The outpouring of love, and all of the kind words here on Facebook, has been nothing short of amazing. I so appreciate reading all of your thoughts, and looking at all of your pictures. I hope you'll be able to attend!"
"Many have asked if there was a particular charity or cause that was important to Marcia, or where they could send flowers. Since EMS was so important to her, we have set up an EMS training fund in her name with our Fire Company. Monies will be used to train new EMS responders, or for community CPR training.
Donations may be sent to the Warren Volunteer Fire Company,
11 Sackett Hill Road, Warren, CT 06754."
SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS
- Three out of every five fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke detectors.
- Ensuring that your smoke and carbon Monoxide detectors are working cuts your risk of fire death in half.
- Smoke Alarms should be tested every month.
- Check your detector’s manufacture date. Alarms should be replaced after 10 years.
The newest alarms come with 10 year lithium batteries so they don’t need to be changed, just test them to make sure your family can hear them.
After changing batteries it is also a good time to practice your family’s escape plan. Make sure everyone knows two ways out of every room and gathers at the designated meeting place.
For additional fire safety information please see NFPA.org and click on the Fire prevention tab for a wealth of information about Smoke Alarms. The Connecticut Fire Academy is the teaching arm of the Connecticut Commission on Fire Prevention and Control. Part of their mission is educating the public in fire and burn prevention.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018!
