CLEARFIELD – Because of recent fires in Clearfield Borough, residents were reminded about fire safety procedures during Thursday night’s Clearfield Borough Council meeting.
Fire Chief Todd Kling said smoke alarms save lives and residents should change their batteries regularly. He also noted a misconception about carbon monoxide alarms, stating people believe they work the same as a smoke alarm. However, he said they don’t.
“If there are any questions in the general public, they can contact the borough office, and I’ll help anybody get these fire alarms where they need to be,” Kling said. “Fire season is upon us, let’s just prepare ourselves and get ready.”
In addition, Borough Operations Manager Leslie Stott reminded residents not to rake leaves into the streets. She said it causes problems with the storm inlets and creates havoc with the storm water.
In other business, the borough:
