June Guest Speaker: Gabe Tabeling, Rootstown Fire Department

Gabe provided us with valuable information for on fire safety for our business and home. Did you know the fire department will come to your business, free of charge and provide you with a fire inspection? Call them anytime; and definitely before you decide to begin a remodel job. Inspections will provide life saving information for you, your staff and help to keep the fire department personnel safe should they need to respond to your business in an emergency.

Also available are CPR classes. They can come to your business and provide instruction to your staff. Give them a call for more information or to schedule a class. 330-325-7233

Gabe suggested that you practice fire drills with your entire staff. Don't just talk about it, do it. Have a designated safe zone outside and do a head count. Tell your employees to wait in the safe zone, and do not leave. Knowing who is safely out of the building is important information for the fire department when they arrive.

So much good information. Please call the Fire Department if you have any questions, or are unsure about a safety issue. They are here for you and can help.
