The Carlisle Fire Department received free smoke alarms for nearly 200 homes in the City of Carlisle fire district. If you need a smoke detector for your home, you can submit your request for a free smoke detector. After reviewing the applications, the smoke detectors will provided by the Carlisle Fire Department to qualified families and will be installed. Smoke alarms save lives and provide an early warning of fire, giving you and your family more time to safely evacuate your home. Do you need smoke alarms in your home? You may qualify for free smoke alarms from the Carlisle Fire Department if you meet the following criteria: You live in the City of Carlisle Fire District. You live in at the resident needing the alarm. You may request for smoke alarms in your home, by submitting a request form. Request forms can be found on the City Web page ( smoke-alarms-for-carlisle-residents), on the Carlisle Fire Department facebook page ( Carlisleiowafiredepartment) or at the Carlisle Fire De- partment or City of Carlisle. Contact Chief Doll (515-989-4121) or Chief Glover for further questions or information (515-989-3311). An ionization smoke alarm is generally more respon- sive to flaming fires, and a photoelectric smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or a combination alarm (photoelectric and ionization) should be installed in homes. Be tested at least monthly by pushing the test button. Smoke rises; install smoke alarms following manufacturer's instructions high on a wall or on a ceil- ing. Save manufacturer's instructions for testing and maintenance. Replace batteries in all smoke alarms at least once a year. If an alarm "chirps", warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away. Replace all smoke alarms, including alarms that use 10-year batteries and hard-wired alarms, when they are 10 year old or sooner if they do not respond properly. Alarms that are hard-wired (and include battery backup) must be installed by a qualified electrician. Smoke alarms are available for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These devices use strobe lights. Vibra- tion devices can be added to these alarms To the Rescue Our Lives we Risk Our Friends to Save Checking Your Fire Alarms The Carlisle Fire Department and the International Fire Chiefs Association want to encourage you to adopt a new habit; changing your smoke alarm batteries every November when you set your clocks back for DST. BUT, we would like to encourage you when you change your clocks in March to check you smoke detector to make sure they are in good working order. This should be done monthly, however, by making it a habit to check your smoke detectors with changing your clocks, you are en- suring a safer environment for your family. All homes should have working smoke detectors. Roughly two thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Work- ing smoke alarms cut the risk of death in reported home fires in half. If you have a smoke detector that needs a new battery, the Carlisle Fire Department has free 9 volt battery for your smoke detector. Carlisle Fire district citizens may also be eligible to receive a free smoke detector for your home by contact the fire department. Smoke detectors should: Beinstall in every bedroom, outside each separate sleep- ing area and on every level of the home, including the basement. Interconnect all smoke alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound. Larger homes may need additional smoke alarms to provide enough pro- tection. Smoke alarms should be installed generally at least 10 feet from a cooking appliance to prvent false alarms.

Do you want to do something to honor or remember your loved ones? Is one of your New Year's resolutions to do kind deeds? Are you the type of person who likes to "pay it forward"? If you answered "yes" to any or all of the above questions, you should consider establishing an en- dowment for the Carlisle Area Dollars for Scholars. When an endowment has been established, there will be a schol- arship given every year. What a great way to give the gift that keeps giving! EVERY Carlisle High School graduating senior who ap- plies for a Dollars for Scholars scholarship, receives a scholarship. Applications are scored anonymously, and the amount each student receives is determined by the scores on the application. Students are awarded points for academics, extracurricular involvement, length of time in our school system, work history, personal circum- stances, and volunteer history. The final step in the pro- cess is to match the recipient with an endowment or named scholarship. Currently, all principal and interest monies from the established 57 endowments have not been utilized to award scholarships. Funds are being held to accrue in- terest for as long as possible before only the interest from the endowment account will be used annually. The money for scholarships thus far has come from fundraising, such as the PEACH Affair. As class sizes continue to increase, the task becomes even larger. How- ever, endowments will be the key to a sustainable pro- gram for years and years to come. A Carlisle Area Dollars for Scholars endowment costs $3500, which is payable over a period of two years. The money for an endowment can come from one individual, a family, several individuals or families, or a business, just to name a few. If you are interested in establishing an endowment or have additional questions, please contact Marne Sievers at (515)681-1606 Carlisle Area Dollars for Scholars Endowments (as of January 31, 2014) Chad Michael Huisinga Christopher J.
