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.

Going Green and Getting Platinum! 

Congratulations to Crescent Hill on recently earning a Platinum Level Green Living Certification from Brightside's Green Living program.  In an effort led by the CHCC Green Committee, residents achieved this after taking surveys about their living habits.  The surveys were then sent to Brightside, which awarded points based on reported activities such as recycling, planting trees, using energy efficient appliances, and more.  Keep living green, Crescent Hill!

West Nile Virus Found in Mosquitos in Crescent Hill

 

The Crescent Hill Community Council was contacted by the Environmental Health Specialist in the Mosquito Control Division for the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness for our area. She informed us of potential mosquito borne vector disease for Crescent Hill and Southern Baptist Seminary regions.

 

Their trap located near the Grinstead Ave parking area of Southern Baptist College has yielded both very high trap numbers and more importantly, tested positive for West Nile Virus. Steps they have taken to reduce the mosquito population in our area include treating catch basins with larvicide and fogging with adulticide.

 

Here is what you can do to help prevent or reduce mosquito borne vector disease in your area: 

1. Use insect repellant.

2. Wear long sleeved shirts and pants.

3. Empty standing water in your yard every 5-7 days, such as flower pots, children’s toys, swimming pools, tires, gutters, & bird baths, and pet bowls.

4. Keep windows shut when using air conditioning.

5. Use screens in windows and doors when air conditioning is unavailable.

6. Utilize fans while in a stationary position on your porch or deck.

 

The Mosquito Control Program does not have a “fogging List” and does not practice spraying based on a schedule.  Areas that are fogged are those that meet specific criteria:

1. Positive human cases of mosquito transmitted disease.

2. Mosquito samples are disease positive.

3. Mosquito traps have excessive counts.

4. Mosquito control program staff note high incidence of adult mosquitoes.
