• INCIDENT: On Jan. 26, a frozen pipe in the sprinkler system at Niagara Falls High School required Platoon 1 to respond at 11:29 p.m. All companies worked to stop the water flow and clean the floors, which had up to two inches of water on them. The water caused considerable damage.
• NOTE: The extreme cold weather of late has some residents in the city turning to a variety of methods to remain warm. City residents are reminded that they should never use their stove or oven for additional heat. In the case of a gas stove, dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can be produced and could cause death. If you use portable heaters, make sure that they are used with adequate ventilation and that you use the proper fuel in the heater. Use only appliances that are certified for by a third party, such as the UL. If you have questions about fire safety, call the Falls Fire Prevention Bureau at 286-4728.
