NC811 – Onslow County Fire Marshal’s Office Highlighted


Onslow County Fire Marshal’s Office Highlighted as an NC811 Safe Digging Partner
 
Greensboro, NC (June 1, 2017) Onslow County Fire Marshal’s Office has been chosen as the NC811 Safe Digging Partner for May 2017 due to its ongoing commitment to safety, damage prevention and spreading the “Call Before You Dig” message to the public.
 
Many safe digging partners have made the commitment to call 811 prior to any excavation, but few go above and beyond with making safety their #1 priority. The Onslow County Fire Marshal’s Office has shown their commitment to keeping their community and employees safe. They participate in the monthly Jones/Onslow Utility Coordinating Committee meetings along with promoting the safety message to the Rural Fire Departments throughout the county. During the month of April, Onslow County Emergency Services participated in the Fire Marquee challenge sharing the message of Calling 811 Before You Dig on many marquees around the county. “This is truly the type of Safe Digging Partner NC811 is looking for: The commitment to keeping the community safe by promoting the call 811 before you dig message,” said NC811’s Education Department Manager, Ann Rushing.
 
Howard Corey, Education Liaison with NC811 acknowledged Brian Kelly of the Onslow County Fire Marshal’s Office with a Safe Digging Partner award certificate at the Onslow County Board of Commissioners meeting in Jacksonville, NC on Monday, May 15, 2017. “Onslow County Emergency Services realizes that when utilities are damaged, it has the potential to not only affect a single home, but it could affect a whole community,” said Kelly. “Furthermore; it can affect our ability to respond while crews repair services. Our goal is to keep units in the station and not have to respond to emergencies. Sharing the message of “Calling 811 Before You Dig” is just another method that helps us with our cause.”
 
Every six minutes an underground utility line is damaged because someone decided to dig without calling 811 first. Find out more about becoming a Safe Digging Partner.

Spring Email – Hop Into Savings

HOP into Spring with Electrical Safety Tips!
 
 
Warmer weather makes for an increase in outdoor work, both on the job and at home. We wanted to touch base on a few electrical safety tips that can help ensure your safety during outdoor activities.
 
Following a few simple safety rules can help reduce the number of electrical accidents:
* Ladders—even those made of wood—that come into contact with a power line can prove fatal. Keep all ladders at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.
* Unplug outdoor tools and appliances when not in use.
* Inspect power tools and appliances for frayed cords, broken plugs and cracked or broken housings. Repair or replace damaged items.
* Water and electricity do not mix. Avoid damp conditions — including wet grass — when using electricity.

Spring Clean with Energy Savings


Spring cleaning is an annual ritual practiced by millions of homeowners. Did you know that it can help you save energy and reduce your impact on the environment? While you’re chasing those dust bunnies around, consider the following tips to make your home more energy efficient:
 
 
 
 
* Behind the fridge – When vacuuming and dusting, remember to clean behind the refrigerator. Dust buildup causes the refrigerator to run less efficiently.
* Around your windows – While cleaning windows, look for loose panes, cracks or poor caulking, which can lead to air leaks. In spring and summer, replace storm windows with screens to provide natural cooling.
* Light bulbs – Dust accumulation on light bulbs blocks a considerable amount of light. Wipe off bulbs to get more light for your energy dollar. Replace incandescent bulbs with ENERGY STAR® certified LEDs. They use 70 to 90 percent less energy and last much longer.
* Ductwork – Leaky ducts often result in rapid dust accumulation around heating and cooling vents, causing your air conditioning system to run less efficiently. A properly sealed and insulated duct system can save energy and money – and make your home more comfortable. Have your ductwork inspected and sealed by a quality professional.
* Office – Every desk could use some de-cluttering. Shred unneeded documentation like older mail or statements.
 
During spring cleaning, you may have more laundry and dishwashing than usual. Make sure these appliances are fully loaded before running them.
