Had to share this great picture from our Police Department!
Because we are required to wear face coverings, we may forget to drink fluids. So lets all remind each other and ourselves to drink plenty of water!

BE CAREFUL CARROLLTON!

Heat Advisory in effect through Friday with heat index between 105-110 degrees.

The National Weather Service recommends we drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun as much as possible, and check on relatives and neighbors.

The Carrollton Police Department unofficially recommends ice cream too.

The Incredibles 2004 Clip Fire Sprinkler

https://youtu.be/GEwhlrT-7Tc

Please watch the video clip showing how an automatic fire sprinkler system does NOT operate!

Most of us have seen movies and TV shows that falsely depict how an automatic fire sprinkler system works. Remember that an automatic fire sprinkler system is activated by high heat and not by “pulling the fire alarm” (fire alarm pull station) or by a smoke alarm activating. Also water will not come out of all of the fire sprinkler heads all at once.

Most of the time, the fire is put out by only one fire sprinkler head. But if one fire sprinkler head cannot put the fire out because the fire spreads, then the next nearest fire sprinkler head will also activate (go off).

To sum it up:

Only one fire sprinkler head activates at a time by high heat and not by a smoke alarm or by pulling the fire alarm*.

*In some large flammable chemical plants, aircraft hangers or other high hazard buildings, all of the fire sprinklers may activate at once either automatically or manually by opening a valve. These are called deluge fire sprinkler systems. Why?? Because in these facilities, if there is a fire, then it may get very big fast! Therefore, by all of the fire sprinkler heads activating at one time, the system stays "ahead of fire".

Thanks,

WE LOVE DIRECTING TRAFFIC! (...when it's for a great cause.)

Kudos to Cowboy Tre' and the gang from Sandy Lake RV Resort for giving away $10,000 worth of gasoline today to Metrocrest Services clients and others in need of a financial break.

They partnered with area churches, Sam Pack's Five Star Ford in Carrollton, and many others in Carrollton on this effort to help lift the burden so many are bearing right now.

07/17/2020

It is extremely important to have interconnected smoke alarms installed throughout our homes so that the smoke alarm in your bedroom will alarm even if smoke from a fire activates the smoke alarm in your child’s bedroom or another part of your home.

If your home does not already have hard-wired interconnected smoke alarms, a very easy way to upgrade from stand alone (non-interconnected) smoke alarms, would be to install wireless interconnected smoke alarms.

Basically, with interconnected smoke alarms, either hardwired or wireless, when one smoke alarm activates, all of the the smoke alarms sound.

Did you know that this summer in the DFW area, there has been a record number of boats sold! Even during the middle of the week, it almost resembles a major holiday because of all of the boat traffic! Americans are enjoying the outdoors and spending a lot of time together this summer!

But please, lets all make our kids wear life jackets while on a boat AND when swimming in the lake while anchored out.

CFR cares so please be safe out there!
