Winter Safety Tips: Winters are cold! Dress appropriately in layers for warmth. Skin frostbites easily. Cover all skin surfaces and limit your exposure to the outdoors.

Summer is a memory. Remember to make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are functioning. Replace your batteries if you have not done so this year. Carbon Monoxide kills without warning. If you feel sick and the CO monitor is sounding, call your fire department for help immediately!

Avoid Cold morning surprises: Have your furnace checked for safe operation. A cracked heat exchanger can put deadly carbon monoxide gas into tour home

The Second Anual Christmas Eve Blood Drive on December 24, 2014 Blood Center Drive at Somers Fire and Rescue Station #1

Somers Fire and Rescue Department hosted their Second Annual Christmas Eve Blood Drive for the Blood Center of Wisconsin on December 24, 2014 from, 9:00 a.m. to 13:00 p.m. Our goal was "24 units on the 24th" of the gift of life saving blood for the Holiday Season 2014. We fell a couple units short, but are happy that those that took the time from a busy holiday schedule to donate helped alieviate the shortage of the blood supply that happens around every holiday.

Twenty-three people generously gave of their busy Holiday time, to stop by and donate blood. One of these persons was unable to donate blood for health reasons, yet wanted to contribute in some other way. It spoke of his kindness and concern for helping those who needed blood this Holiday Season. Another donor was a truck driver from out of Town making a delivery to the closed Somers Town Hall. Unable to leave his delivery load, he had extra time on his hands and contributed to the Blood Drive. In all, twenty-two units were collected for the Blood Drive. For about one-half hour in time for each person's donation, these twenty-two donations has the potential to help up to sixty-six people in need of blood and/or blood products.

The Blood Center of Wisconsin is happy for the collections this day, and look forward to the Somers Third Annual Blood Drive in 2015.

Veteran donor Ruth Gosslin, former member of Somers Rescue Squad, laughs and makes a face in good humor at the photographer as she donates blood. Ruth is a regular at the Blood Center giving donations of blood, sometimes as often as every eight weeks. For Ruth, donating blood is as easy as a casual walk in the park.
