Thank you to those that have already placed their Christmas Wreath Order!! It is turning out to be another nice fundraiser---but we only have a couple of days left to get your order in! TODAY, TOMORROW and FRIDAY (11/10/17) are the last days for you to place your orders!! Christmas is quickly approaching if we like it or not.

The Manitowoc Police Department would like to remind citizens to have their furnances, boilers and water heaters inspected annually in order to prevent any carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. It is that time of the year to take care of this as we have all probably started using our various heating systems. Carbon monoxide is called the "silent" and "invisible killer" because it's a scentless, colorless, and tasteless toxic gas. It's the number one cause of death due to poisoning in America. Any time you burn something--like gasoline, natural gas, wood, oil, propane, or charcoal--carbon monoxide is released into the air. In outdoor spaces, this usually isn't a health hazard because there is enough area to dissipate and the particles never amount to a toxic level. The danger comes when carbon monoxide is released in a contained area like your home, RV or garage. If you have carbon monoxide poisoning, you may feel dizzy, become nauseous or throw up, develop a headache, get confused and/or pass out. The Fire Department recommends the digital CO Detectors which dispalys a reading of how many PPM of CO is being detected. A reading of 10PPM is an emergency situation where 911 should be called and the structure evacuated immediately. It is recommended that carbon monoxide detectors are installed in each level of your home including the basement.

It is that time of the season as you may find a deer darting onto the roadway and into the path of your vehicle. Always be on the lookout for them, especially in the hours of darkness. Deer are active at dusk and dawn while moving back and forth between their bedding and feeding areas.

The sun is setting an hour earlier with the end of Daylight Savings Time, therefore don't forget to ALWAYS TURN YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON and be extra cautious of pedestrians and bicycle traffic in hours of darkness.

Fall back! Daylights savings ends Sunday, November 5th at 2:00 a.m. Set clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight (Saturday). Enjoy the extra hour of sleep!
