Really, make sure to check your dryer vent for lint buildup. Here, since the exhaust is somewhat involved ,it requires disassembling a section of vent pipe. Just the two of us , but an inspection always bears fruit, lint.
If I could throw a kill switch upon leaving my house , I would. I only say that as ‘faulty wiring’ “short circuit” always figures in new stories I read concerning house fires. That is impossible though , the sumps must have juice!!
Gotta love the ” new fangled” irons with the auto shut off . I can remember turning around on 101 after the iron on? or off ? conversation .
I won’t even leave the dryer going when ducking over to Arjays.
Take a good look around your place as we head inside and turn on the furnaces, fill the wood stoves, pull out the space heaters. Smoke detectors?
You are on your own.
Should one be concerned about the mutual fire aid pact in NH? I see another Town/Village/Hamlet bought a new fire engine. They still cost a bundle, half a mil easy. Should participants in the pact be compelled to buy new equipment? I become concerned when I hear about a fire truck failing at the scene. Old Betsy might still take a shine but c’mon, order a new fire truck.
I was looking at the Rockingham County map and wonder about all these little villages and hamlets. How can they survive,really? I am a proponent of mixing things up a bit and actually employing a County model for at least firefighting.
Portsmouth recently suggested taking over Newington’s FD. A few years ago a house caught on fire opposite the mall. There was some problem at the scene and the house burned down. I am pretty sure what the problem was but who wants to dredge up old news.
The Air Show debacle, can we talk about that a little? The news door slammed shut on any recap of that mess. Thirty thousand people ( official count?) were trapped for hours at a scheduled event, hot day sure, but clear. I was away enjoying my own air show on Mt Katahdin in Maine.
You gotta figure that was the last Air Show for Pease.
Seabrook Station( nuke plant) wants to extend their license and the State is scrambling to find their feet on yes/no. I guess the State knew all about the time lines.
I think a drill is coming up soon or some group is planning a disaster drill on the Seacoast
We couldn’t evacuate the air show crowd . A year or more in the planning.
There should be some truth talking about that mess.Maybe we could learn something useful should there be a real emergency.
