Open House for Building Renovation - Mount Joy  
Date: Sun, Feb 26, 2017 13:00
Address: FDMJ
Details:

Today we had the opportunity to welcome members of various churches in the Mount Joy area for an open house. Over the past two years, the FDMJ membership has actively undergone a process to renovate the fire station, built in 1980. Many parts of the station were not updated since the station was originally constructed.

Thanks to the generosity of our community members, organized through the churches of Mount Joy, we were able to fund the second portion of the building renovation. This project consisting of updated office spaces, meeting spaces, gym area, lounge, kitchen, and bunk room. Also, bathroom facilities, electrical, and plumbing upgrades were completed. Without this extremely generous donation, none of these improvements would have been able to come to furition.

Fireplace Safety Tip - Mount Joy Borough
Date: Wed, Dec 21, 2016 08:44
Address: Mount Joy
Details:

As pretty as a perfectly decorated fireplace mantel and hearth may look over the holidays, keep in mind that you are adding combustible materials to a heat source. A rule of thumb is to have 2-3 feet of clearance. Remember that heat rises, so hanging those stocking or garland on the mantel puts them in harm's way. In addition to the radiant heat, fireplaces may throw sparks or hot ashes. So keep that hearth and mantel clean and free from clutter. Wishing you a safe holiday season!


Fire Safety Tip - Mount Joy Borough
Date: Fri, Dec 09, 2016 12:55
Address: Mount Joy
Details:

Be cautious when using power strips in your home. Too many times it's easy to overload a power strip which will cause a fire. A typical household 6-outlet power strip has a max load of 15 amps. Did you know that a space heater draws 12.5 amps alone! Plugging that into a power strip will max out the circuit quickly, and is NOT recommended by the manufacturer. Take a few minutes to read the manufacturer's guidelines when utilizing these types of products. Never plug a power strip into an extension cord. Be safe over this holiday season!
