Molière has filled this fast and funny farce about the medical profession with witty comebacks, wordy misunderstandings, pranks, puns, and mischief; he is considered one of the great masters of comedy in western literature. Best for ages 10 and up.

Winter Fire Safety – A Message from Louisville Fire Marshal

 

Most of us look forward to winter and its encouragement of hot cocoa, fuzzy clothes and warm houses. It's also the peak season for the second leading cause of home fires in the US - heating equipment. Over 70% of these fires are due to improper use of space heaters, fireplaces and chimneys. The Louisville Division of Fire would like to remind you to keep 3 feet of clearance around space heaters and make sure they plug directly into a wall (not an extension cord or power strip). Ensure that they are turned off when you leave the room or go to sleep. FEMA and the US Fire Administration recommend all chimneys and vents should be cleaned and inspected yearly.

 

In addition to this seasonal information, please make sure that you have working smoke alarms in your home. If you are unable to test yours or have none and live in the Urban Services District, please call 311 and request that the Louisville Division of Fire come out to test or replace your smoke alarms free of charge. We can also provide a home safety check to ensure you are as safe as possible.

 

Finally, we would like to remind you that three of the largest causes of fires are careless smoking, electrical equipment malfunction and unattended cooking. If you would like to request a home safety check for any of these issues, please let us know and we will assist you.
