Today’s Top 3 Essex Chester Deep River Articles are:
- According to Essex Fire Engine Co. No. 1, “If there is a power outage due to a storm and you need to use a generator, please use it properly to keep you and your family safe. Place the generator at least 20 feet away from your home and downwind from any open doors, windows, or vents. Turn off the generator and let it cool for 15-20 minutes before refueling. Do not attempt to power your home wiring by plugging a generator into a wall outlet. Instead, use heavy-duty outdoor extension cords to connect your appliances to your generator. Remember that if you try to reverse power your home, this is not only a serious fire hazard, but a danger to utility workers trying to restore power. Workers can be electrocuted if back-fed without a transfer switch. Do not use the generator in rain or wet conditions. Install a fire extinguisher nearby. Your home has a carbon monoxide monitor running at all times.”Stay safe, stay dry and stay warm this holiday weekend!” (Essex Fire Engine Co. #1 via Facebook)
- Want something fun to do with your kids during this holiday? According to the Ivoryton Library Facebook post, “Visit Elizabeth in the Nursery for fun crafts and games! For more information, call 860-767-1252 and register for special events. Please.” (Ivoryton Library Association via Facebook)
- If you’re looking to add a four-legged ball of love and affection to your family, look no further than these shelters in the Essex-Chester-Deep River area for pets you can adopt. Thousands of dogs, cats, and other animals of all ages are homeless throughout Connecticut. Many of them are in your area. Looking for a new family member? Consider starting with a local rescue facility like A Chance For Love Rescue, where Archie the Cat is patiently waiting. If you’re not sure you don’t have time to care for your pet all year round, many shelters offer the opportunity to raise your pet until it’s placed. If you need help searching, Patch and Petfinder can help. We’ve put together this week’s list of pets available for adoption near you. Or, if you prefer dogs, some great dogs are also available.(Patch)
