Fireworks can be dangerous and can cause severe injuries when improperly used. Read on for a few suggestions for a safe holiday gathering.

Mind the ice

We know that some Fermilab folks enjoy skating on the pond in front of Wilson Hall after it ices over. It’s fine to skate on the ice, but be safe when doing so. Here are some tips to help you judge whether or not an iced over pond near you is safe for recreational activity.

Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 4-10, and the Fermilab Fire Department reminds you to be sure your home is outfitted with an operating smoke detector.

Last week, the Batavia, Fermilab and Warrenville fire departments conducted training exercises in the Village. FESS is removing materials from buildings scheduled to be demolished to be reused in similar structures elsewhere. The fire departments made use of these near-end-of-life buildings, running emergency drills in and on them. Here the Batavia fire chief joins Fermilab firefighters as they cut into one building’s roof.
