As your grilling on your day off, take a minute to remember all those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country on this Memorial Day. Two local monuments come to mind that honor some of these deceased. If you know of more local monuments, send us a message.

This article has very good information. Nobody wants to have a fire in their home and a smoke alarm can save your life. As the wife of a PFD Liuetenant, i have heard heart breaking stories about loss of property and loss of life. All homes should have working smoke alarms. Please call 311 and put in a request for a free 10 year smoke alarm that will be installed by your local firehouse. If you have elderly or disabled neighbors, please try to check to see if their smoke alarms work. If they don’t, put in a 311 request or email this page and i can see what can be done to get a smoke alarm.

    How to survive: Rowhouse or high-rise fire
    The Philadelphia Fire Department responds to at least 44,000 fire calls each year, ranging from small kitchen fires to high-rise blazes. In 2017, there were 20 fire fatalities in the city. Already this year, there have been more than a dozen fire fatalities, including a Philadelphia firefighter.

Here is a different take on trash picking, which happens alot around here!

    One local man finds treasure, and value, in trash
    One man's trash is another man's treasure and one local man doesn't just say it, he lives it. The stories Ogbonna Hagins tells can be troubling. "I was getting some shoes and some radios out of the trash, or what people call trash, and someone said something to me out the window," Hagins said.

Majority of houses in the neighbirhood are not required to have sprinklers. Just curious if anyone rehabbed their home and had sprinklers installed? Was is really expensive0?

    Fire sprinklers can protect homes, not just offices and hotels | Philadelphia Fire Department
    When Tara Mohr and her husband bought a rowhouse in Northern Liberties in 2014, they were merely looking for more space. But the property came with a potentially life-saving bonus: a home fire sprinkler system. Their residence is one of nearly 5,000 sprinklered one- and two-family dwellings in the city.

They can be a temporary nuisance caused by a system failure or something that impacts our lives for days, resulting from a Nor'easter, Tropical Storm or other severe weather. Outages can also impact travel, bringing trees down on wires or roads that affect mass-transit or create hazardous driving conditions.
