NEWS RELEASE- by District Chief Dan Grimm


News Conference, Thursday December 6th, 11:30 a.m.

It’s that time of the year again when the leaves are replaced with bare branches, the days get shorter and a sweatshirt or jacket replaces your favorite t-shirt. With the unseasonably warm weather we’re having, it’s easy to forget that winter is fast approaching and there are several items that need to be addressed to keep you and your family safe for the winter season.

The Evansville-Vanderburgh County Building Commission and Evansville Fire Department will jointly hold a News Conference in front of the Civic Center on the plaza, to discuss the dangers of Carbon Monoxide. We will be joined by several area Heating & Air contractors whose knowledge and experience will yield valuable information.

EFD will have Holiday Safety Tips regarding cooking, heating equipment, candles & decorations as well as Christmas tree safety.

The news conference will be Thursday December 6th at 11:30 a.m. in front of the Civic Center, next to the Christmas tree.
