On Friday, Oct. 29 the children from the Community Services Day Care visited Town Hall dressed in their Halloween costumes.

More or less development at Indian Ridge depends on timing By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen Despite the original builder’s stated decision to sell the property, and neighbors’ longstanding protests, North Haven may still receive a development with approximately 400 units off Middletown Avenue and Half Mile Road. For years, CMB Capital Appreciation has looked to put up the Indian Ridge project, three 50-foot multistory structures containing 396 total living spaces on a 42acre property near Half Mile Road. North Haven’s Planning and Zoning Commission first rejected CMB in 2007, and has since appealed several Connecticut court decisions finding for Indian Ridge. On Oct. 4, 2010, Connecticut Appellate Court Judge Vincent Roche found once more for CMB. First Selectman Michael Freda said Oct.

29 that chances were “very high” that CMB would sell the property to Toll Brothers, a national construction company proposing a two-story, 145-unit spread that locals find more palatable. However, CMB principal Chris Migliaro was unsure necessary deadlines could be met for Toll Brothers’ to be the buyer. Town attorneys originally had until Nov. 1 to appeal Roche’s decision, but successfully filed to extend the period until Nov. 22. “CMB is going to sell [the Indian Ridge property] to Toll Brothers or somebody else,” Migiliaro said Oct. 29, “I don’t know if the town can get to the point of working it out with Toll Brothers in time. Everything takes forever, and obviously time constraints are involved.” “There are other people standing there, See Project, page 29

After serving as North Haven’s state representative for 14 years, Democratic incumbent Steve Fontana bowed out to Republican challenger Dave Yaccarino on Election Night, Nov. 2, 2010. Yaccarino bested Fontana by 5,497 votes to 4,734, taking 54 percent of total ballots. North Haven’s 10,231 votes represented a 66 percent turnout. Fontana received his losing verdict at North Haven Democrat’s Grand Apizza base on Washington Avenue. Before speaking, Fontana walked table to table, speaking personally to two dozen supporters in attendance. “This was not the result we wanted or expected,” Fontana said upon taking the microphone. “I want to thank all the North Haven voters who came out and voted for me today.” “I know in my heart that the people of North Haven are there for me,” he continued. “I believe in my heart that the reason people in North Haven voted for me over the last 14 years was because they value what I do and how I do it. They appreciate bipartisanship at work and appreciate my results. It’s been a pleasure for me to fight for them.” Fontana had kind words for Yaccarino. “Congratulations to my opponent,” he said. “He ran a great campaign. I wish him well.” Down the street, the mood was jubilant inside the Republican’s base at Fantasia,

where Yaccarino was celebrating with his followers. “It took a lot of work,” he said of his triumph. “I couldn’t have done it without all of my supporters, from First Selectman Michael Freda to kids who have never worked on political campaigns before to people who have been around a lot of campaigns.” “I had Democrats, Republicans and independents on my campaign,” he added. “I’m very proud of that.” Yaccarino also praised his opponent. “Steve had worked awfully hard and did a good job for a long time,” he said, “I have to congratulate him for all those years.” “But now it’s time for a new perspective,” he continued. “I will work for all the people in North Haven. I will listen, and vote for legislature that is good for the community, first and foremost.” Yaccarino won four of five North Haven voting districts, taking the Recreational Center 1,043 to 799, Montowese 1,103 to 923, Clintonville 1,386 to 1,021 and Green Acres 662 to 547. Fontana’s took Ridge Road Elementary School, 1,183 to 1,063, and bested Yaccarino on absentee ballots, 261 to 240. In the consolidated Judge of Probate district race, North Haven judge and Re-

Police Chief requests lifting hiring freeze at BOF By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven Police Chief James DiCarlo has requested that a hiring freeze on two open officer positions be lifted after six months, rather than after the originallyplanned 12-month period. After Sergeant Richard Diana and Officer William Joslyn retired effective May 31, 2010, their jobs were not refilled amidst cost-cutting measures during the last budget season, which saw a negative vote at first referendum. Following the “no” vote, North Haven’s police department was asked by town officials to cut their budget by an additional two percent. DiCarlo and Deputy Police Chief Thomas McLoughlin suggested suspending the two unfilled positions for six months. Town officials replied with a request for a 12-month freeze, which DiCarlo put in place, but said was closer to a four percent

reduction. During the Oct. 27 Board of Finance meeting, police representatives said that suspending Diana and Joslyn’s positions was running up department overtime costs while potentially putting town services at risk. “In the first three months, we’re starting to blow through the overtime account,” said Joseph F. D’Errico Sr., chairman of the Board of Police Commissioners, during public comment on Oct 27. “In some cases, we have officers out there working 16 hours a day,” he added. “I don’t want someone working for 16 hours a day. I don’t know how effective they’re going to be.” DiCarlo concurred. “Freezing the two positions for a 12-month period is very significant. It has a very significant effect on the police department,” he said. “One of the reasons is because it takes 35 weeks to get the officer back out on the street.

Police academy training takes 22 weeks, he pointed out. Once graduated, an officer is state-mandated to field train with another officer for 13 weeks. Should the two positions be unfrozen after six months and returned beginning January 2010, a candidate could be sent to the academy by February. “The end result is, the police officer won’t be out on the street until approximately Nov. 1,” DiCarlo said. “That’s how long it takes to run through the cycle.” “If these two positions are

frozen for the entire year, we would not be able to bring somebody on until at least August or September, and then the 35 weeks would start from there,” he added. “Then we’re talking almost two years away before we can get back up to full strength.” In years of maximum employment, North Haven’s police department carried 48 personnel. “We’re now down to 46. We’re at the level we were at in 1985,” DiCarlo said. “Between the period of 1985 and 2010, we’ve only grown by two police officers.

Freda visits Quinnipiac University

Glenn Beck visits North Haven By Lynn Semple Special to the North Haven Citizen

On a chilly October morning, hundreds of people lined up at the North Haven Barnes and Noble to meet Glenn Beck.

Paying for leaf pick-up and firefighters on BOF agenda By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen During the Oct. 27 Board of Finance meeting, topics included bulk leaf pickup and union contract negotiations. Board member Michael Hallahan asked how North Haven would fund bulk leaf pickup, which was originally cut during last referendum season, but ultimately restored with financing to be determined. Director of Finance Ed Swinkowski said he had been speaking with Public Works Director Lynn Sadosky about strategies to find $275,000 necessary to afford bulk leaf pickup. “At this point, we’ve looked at a few things,” Swinkowski said, “like tip-

ping fees — we think we could save $100,000 on that line item. Also, two employees who haven’t been replaced, and the deferral of those two items alone will save us probably about $150,000.” “But it’s a work in process,” he added, “and we’re still working on some other ways to come up with the $275,000. We’ve accomplished taking care of about $150,000 of the $275,000 so far.” Hallahan asked whether all of the $275,000 was anticipated to originate from Public Works cuts. “We’re trying to do that,” Swinkowski replied. “That’s our goal. That’s our objective,” added board member and First Selectman Michael Freda. “I think, over

the course of the next two Board of Finance meetings here, we’ll have a clearer picture of that.” Hallahan seemed to favor further bulk leaf pickup financing considerations going first through Board of Finance deliberation. “The question comes up — should Public Works make these changes without any advice, any conferring, with members of the Board [of Finance] to see if we agree with the areas the money is coming from,” he said. Board of Finance Chairman Richard Monico believed Sadosky could alone decide how to allocate within Public Works. “However she uses her resources to accomplish her goal,” he said. “All right,” Hallahan responded. “This will be an on-

going topic, I’m sure.” Hallahan also asked about North Haven’s negotiations regarding the firefighters union’s new contract, as the most recent contract expired this past fiscal year. “We’re in the beginning stages of that,” Freda replied. “We are officially in collective bargaining. I’ve met with the union on several occasions so far. We are sharing our different perspectives back and forth. There will be an attorney meeting coming up within the next two weeks with our town attorney and their at-

torney.” Freda could give no timetable for negotiation completion. “It could end up in arbitration, but that’s not the goal,” he said. “We’re trying to work this out. The town has certain things that we’re looking for. In terms of health insurance: increase in co-pays, increase in overall contributions.” “There have been very productive discussions at this point in time,” Freda added. “We’ll see how it goes.”

Third annual fall festival at Peter’s Rock draws large crowd By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

On a cool and cloudy autumn day on Oct. 24, Peter’s Rock Association’s board members hosted their third annual fall festival, drawing a large crowd of over 150 people. Many who came to the event brought their families and friends — some even brought their dogs. “Peter’s Rock Park is a wonderful place consisting of over 220 acres of open space in North Haven located behind First Fuel Gas Station on Middletown Avenue,”

stated Hugh Davis, chairman of the Conservation Commission and a vice-president of Peter’s Rock. “Today’s event is bringing the community together to enjoy nature without traveling far. Also, it is very important to preserve open space and to protect our environment.” Davis further explained about organic gardens located on the park’s other side that are tended by volunteers who grow organic vegetables. Pesticides are not used in the gardens. Some of the produce is given to the Connecticut Food Bank. This year’s festival was co-

chaired by Joanne Chvisuk and Sandy Stetson, two board members of the association, added Davis. “The purpose of today’s event is to thank our members for their support and to share with the community a special place that they have right here in town,” explained Chvisuk and Stetson. “The attendance and participation has grown tremendously from the first year. We enjoy networking and encouraging new members to join.” The festival took place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the park’s entrance. There were two guided hikes up to the summit, pumpkin decorating and a guessing game for the children, and free hotdogs, refreshments and snacks for everyone to enjoy. Also, people got a chance to view the Gator, a police vehicle used to patrol the trails of Peter’s Rock. “The police and fire use the Gator to gain access to areas that are remote and difficult to travel by a regular police vehicle. It also allows us to carry equipment, promote versatility and get to a place sooner,” stated

North Haven Police Officer Matt Falcon. “It helps us with ATV enforcement and patrolling.” North Haven Firefighter Jeff Haag explained that the Gator used by the firefighters allows easy access for them to get to someone who is injured in a remote area or to reach an emergency situation with fires. Both Gators were purchased with grants and have been very beneficial to the fire and police helping to serve the community. “I brought my daughters Emily, Elizabeth and Julia here today because my father is a member of Peter’s Rock and I believe this is a worthwhile organization,” added Haag. “It’s important to maintain open land for people of all ages and to enjoy nature.” The board members were pleased with the turnout and the meeting of new faces. There were people admiring the pretty foliage while sitting on a bench or at a picnic table eating a hotdog and conversing, and parents were taking pictures of their children displaying their creative pumpkins. Laugh-

ter, friendship, cheery conversation and smiling faces made for a good time. “The festival is growing by leaps and bounds and we welcome all new members especially youth groups,” said Ann Lombardi, a board member. “We have worked hard through the years cleaning up and maintaining the park, and our tireless efforts have transformed this place into what it is today, a place for people to walk or hike the various marked trails, sit under the pavilion and relax and come together as a community.” The president of Peter’s Rock Association, Chris Fletcher, agreed with Lombardi and was delighted by the great attendance. He encourages new members and is always looking for extra hands and suggestions to continue with maintaining and preserving the park. “This third festival has been the most successful one yet,” Fletcher said. “We had a lot of new people attend, the foliage was amazing, and the hikes were awesome making for a wonderful

Fall fun at Clintonville Courtesy of Jennifer Crisanti

The students in Mrs. Pacelli’s class were very busy this October celebrating Fall. Clintonville School held a spirit day. The students and staff wore black and orange. Mrs. Pacelli’s class did an amazing job participating. The first grade classes also had pumpkin math in which parents were able to come in and help. They put a fall twist on math, like counting seeds, estimating the creases in a pumpkin and even guessing the weight. The kids, parents and teachers had fun with this fall activity. Pictured are students in Mrs. Pacelli’s class.

Letters to the Editor


To the editor: In September 2010 the roof was repaired, again on the Memorial Library (behind Town Hall on Elm Street). It’s about the third time the roof was repaired at different areas (building is about seven years old). Not many years ago the roof on the town pool building (about 10 years old now), underwent a massive roof repair job. Problems with the high school roof have also been surfacing and we have good reason to be concerned. This is the same roof panel design, same materials and same poor workmanship we have experienced on all

three buildings. If the roofs were done right the first time, they would be good for many years without any maintenance. Bond money was released prematurely — it’s gone. The taxpayer has paid for these roof repairs so far and will continue to pay for more roof repair work. Town leadership states, “There’s no need to use bond money for roof repair as there are no roof problems on the town buildings that require bonding.” Really? The bond money would have saved the taxpayer from these expenses, if it was there to use. We have experienced the trend and have no idea if and

Come put letters, pictures, stories to the editor in our Drop Box in the Memorial Library on the newspaper table

when the roof leaks will stop. Mold and other issues may be stemming from the roof that leaks. Professional roofing contractors doing repair work may refuse to guarantee any part of the roof, knowing it’s a big gamble to guarantee / bond any work linked to what other contractors did wrong or deal with other hidden issues. Unless the roof leaks stop, the taxpayer will continue to pay big bills as we are banking on roof repairs with no guarantees and no cost relief, just like with the defective high school boilers that need to be replaced.

Remember When: a special place in Tauton, Minnesota By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen The years since 1960 have been marked by triumph, turmoil and tragedy. One important triumph was the success of the civil rights movement, which guaranteed all Americans the freedoms written in the Bill of Rights. Another triumph was the nation’s remarkable achievements in space, made possible by technological advances. Turmoil involved disagreements over the Vietnam War. Tragedy involved the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy. Nevertheless, Americans tried to remain confident and focused on the simple things in life in order to get them through rough times. For Jean Hatzopoulos, liv-

ing in a small Minnesotan town with her pet dogs as her best friends and a special place she found one day while riding her bike are very special memories of growing up during the 1960s, and still remain etched in her mind nearly five decades later. This is her story. “My family and I lived in a small town called Tauton with a small population of only 252 people, and my father worked at the feed mill,” recalled Jean. “I would play with the cats that were kept to take care of the mice. At home, my family had pets that included birds and dogs. Dogs were and still are my favorite.” When Hatzopoulos was 12 years old, the family got a dog named Jo-Jo, a black Labrador retriever. Jo-Jo was a gift for Hatzopoulos’ stepbrothers, but they were

Leaf collection rules set for annual collection By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

enjoyed Beck’s company, exclaiming “what a sweetheart,” “he does good work,” “I’m just enjoying the moment,” “this is the happiest moment of my life” and “what a genuinely nice guy.” Beck was born in Washington and raised Catholic. He obtained his first broadcast job as a disc jockey for his hometown radio station at the age of 13 after winning a contest. When his mother died, Beck moved to Bellingham where he attended high school. After graduation, he worked at radio stations in

too young to care for the dog so she became Jean’s responsibility. Jo-Jo and Jean bonded very well. “I would go bike riding with Jo-Jo running along side me on a leash and we would go exploring new places two to three miles away from home,” explained Hatzopoulos. “Times were different back then in that parents didn’t have to worry about their children being kidnapped and we slept with our doors unlocked.” “Every one knew each other and looked out for one another,” she added. “My mother would let me go as long as I told her where I was going and I would return home on time for supper.” One day, Hatzopoulos did not have a particular place in

Utah, Washington D.C. and Connecticut. Along the way, Beck married and divorced his first wife. He also struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, and went through recovery in the mid 1990s. After marrying his second wife in 1999, the couple converted to Mormonism. Beck’s assortments of media outlets have brought him wealth and popularity, along with recurring controversy and criticism. His supporters believe he is brave for defending traditional American value while his critics contend he promotes conspiracy theories for ratings.

mind, so she and Jo-Jo just went on their way, and eventually they came to a hill overlooking the town. Tauton consisted mostly of flat land with very few hills. They went up the hill and both Hatzopoulos and her four-legged companion loved their new spot. It was the ideal place filled with solace, beauty, a good view and a perfect spot to commune with nature. “I would sit on the ground and enjoy the thick green grass under my feet in the spring and summer,” Hatzopoulos said. “Jo-Jo would love running through the leaves in the fall. I would sit on the highest point of the hill and watch the cars and trucks entering and leaving Tauton, and also watch the smoke coming out of the chimneys of homes and public buildings.” “Jo-Jo and I would go to

North Haven’s fall leaf collection program began Nov. 1. “Through Dec. 11, weather-permitting, public works personnel will be out collecting the many bags of leaves as well as the loose piles of leaves left at the curbside by our residents,” First Selectman Michael Freda said in a press release. “Residents may also drop bagged leaves at North Haven’s Recycling Center on Elm Street, Tuesday through Saturday.” The bulk leaf collection schedule will be posted online at under “announcements.” According to a town hall press release, residential leaf collection guidelines include the following: - Bulk leaves must be left at the curb and not in the street or across sidewalks. Placing leaves in the streets is a violation of town ordinance Section 180-11. - No plastic bags will be accepted. Leaves may be put in brown biodegradable paper bags at the curb. Bagged leaves will be picked up on a separate schedule, one day after normal refuse/recycling scheduled collection day. Bagged leaves must be left at the curb by 5 a.m. on the designated collection day. - Bulk leaves are collected from residential properties Monday through Friday in

our special place at least two to three times a week during spring, summer and fall, but never in the winter, because the winters in Minnesota are very difficult,” added Hatzopoulos. Hatzopoulos never told anyone about the hill. It was her little retreat or special place away from home where she would go to relax and to reflect on her daily life and spend time with Jo-Jo, who would look around, bark at the wind, sit and look at Hatzopoulos or fall asleep by Hatzopoulos’ side. At times, Jean thought of her and Jo-Jo as subjects in a Norman Rockwell painting which she called “Sitting on a Hill with My Best Friend.” “I traveled to that hill for four years with Jo-Jo. Then when I turned sixteen, I didn’t have much free time between school and a part-time job, and shortly afterwards

accordance with the established schedule as posted in local papers or on North Haven’s website, weather-permitting. In the event of a snow storm or other weather emergency, leaf collection will be temporarily suspended. - Leaves are collected in the fall only. - Bulk leaves must be placed at the curb by 5 a.m. on the Monday of a street’s designated collection week. - Avoid parking vehicles in the street during an area’s collection period. Do not park cars in or adjacent to any piles of leaves. - Do not mix branches with bulk or paper bagged leaves. Branches may be cut, bundled and tied for removal during normal refuse collection. To protect workers, North Haven may refuse service if branches are mixed with leaves in bulk or paper bags. - If leaves begin to blow around, public works employees suggest residents either wet the leaf piles or secure them with chicken wire or snow fencing. - Do not allow leaves to accumulate in or around storm drains. This reduces the risk of flooding and protects the integrity of North Haven’s basin and storm water system. - Town schedules have been established to reflect the traditional volume of leaves

Jo-Jo died,” stated a tearful Hatzopoulos. “After Jo-Jo, the family adopted another dog named Don’t Know and he loved people and was known by everyone in the neighborhood. I loved Don’t Know very much but I never took him to the hill because that was my special place that I shared only with JoJo.” “A few years later we moved from Minnesota and then I came to Connecticut, married, had children and always had a pet dog,” she continued. “Today, my husband Jack and I adopt greyhounds and they too have unique names just like the dogs I had when I was a child. Even after all these years, I can still picture in my mind Jo-Jo and me sitting on a hill overlooking our town and watching the people and activities from our secret place.”

See Leaf, next page

“I will never forget those days or my Jo-Jo,” Hatzopoulos added, still tearful. “Everyone should find that one unique place and take a friend, and make it your special place.” Life will fade, people will come and go, good times will not last forever and hard times will try our spirits, but the memories remain. For Hatzopoulos, spending quiet time on a hill overlooking her hometown with Jo-Jo reminds her of a memorable time in her life that represented innocence, peace, simplicity, love and friendship during a decade partly defined turmoil and tragedy. Let your heart, as well as your mind, cherish the memories of yesterday for they bring comfort and hope for today and tomorrow, so while we can, we should “remember when.”

Forum focuses on health care reform By Jeffery Kurz The Record-Journal

Federal health care reform is going to require that hospitals, physicians and other health care providers collaborate like never before as the goal of offering insured health-care coverage for all alters the business model for providing care. “Accountable care is going to require us to act together in more constructive ways than we’ve done historically,” said Dr. Fabienne Moore on Tuesday night. “We need to build that culture change into the roots of our care.” Moore is senior director with The Advisory Board, a Washington-based research company focusing on healthcare trends. She was a featured speaker at a physician symposium sponsored by Meriden’s MidState Medical Center and Quinnipiac University. The forum was held at the university’s new School of Health Sciences in North Haven. Among the school’s

O’Connor, the school’s dean. “Because that’s the biggest identified need across the country,” he said. About 100 local physicians and medical office managers signed up for the symposium, which included a tour

of Quinnip-iac’s $50 million health science complex, which features four buildings on 104 acres. About half that number listened to talks about the challenges health care reform will present to providers. Speakers included Moore and Jon Zimmerman, senior vice president for

Dr. Robert Golub, a Wallingford cardiologist, said following the symposium that integrating systems is something for the future, but not ready for the present. “We have a ways to go before we can do electronic medical records,” he said. During his talk, Zimmerman used the analogy of automatic teller machines in banking. At the onset, their use was limited to an individual bank, but now their use is near universal. The same can be accomplished when it comes to linking the languages of electronic medical records. “There’s a lot of technology out there,” he said. “The

Electronic medical records are viewed as a fundamental precursor to significant health-care reform because they can help save costs by eliminating the need for repeated testing and duplication of services. But not all electronic medical record systems can talk to one another. Some hospitals have different systems that can communicate between them only rudimentary information. There’s also the challenge of bringing the capability to primary care practices, which can be hardpressed to finance the high-

question is now are you going to make it work in a system?� The goal, he said, was to pull data from different systems “so that it comes to you in your native language.� During her wide-ranging talk, which included an examination of the universal health-care initiative in Massachusetts, Moore said reform will shift risk from patients to providers. “There’s little or nothing in this legislation that sets patients up for accountability for their behaviors,� she said. She said the reforms will also “definitely expand the bureaucracy.� Some of the physicians attending were not pleased with the legislation and the changes in store for providers. “I think it’s letting the insurance companies off the hook and the paper pushers, the bureaucrats, off the hook,� said Dr. Michael Ackley, a Cheshire podiatrist, following the symposium.

Really, what the timeframes are, what the cost is,” he said. “We’ll discuss it at the November meeting.” Unless DiCarlo could find savings in his department’s budget, Monico said, funding required to unfreeze the two positions would have to be approved by town meeting, which must be called first by the Board of Selectmen. Between salary and benefits, DiCarlo said each new officer would cost North Haven $90,000 to $95,000 per year.

North Haven 7th grade youth football takes championship

North Haven’s 7th grade youth football team captured its second straight Shoreline League Championship this past Saturday, defeating Madison 32-8. The Indians were led by three touchdowns from Michael Montano, who also had an interception. On defense, North Haven received solid play from John Mitchell, Nick Ponzio, Patrick McKenna, Robert Ralston, Anthony Valentino and Jeremy Imperati. Connor Suraci once again was the captain of the offense, coordinating long drives and passing for big plays to Emadi Okwuosa. Jake Kastenhuber also led the Indians on several long drives, with David Mikos punching in the final Indian’s score for his first touchdown of the season. Madison received the opening kickoff and quickly came up against 4th down on their side of the field. They decided to go for it. That decision turned out to be a poor one — North Haven got the stop and took over only 38

yards away from scoring. Shortly thereafter, Montano busted in from in close and the Indians kicked the two-point conversion to open an 8-0 lead. In the second quarter, Madison repeated their decision-making process and again turned the ball over on downs at midfield after Montano thwarted a 4th down attempt with a sack. Another short drive culminated with a Montano run to give North Haven a 14-0 lead. Madison’s third 4th down conversion attempt also failed and North Haven took over on their own 46. Suraci connected with Montano for a long touchdown pass play and North Haven took a 20-0 lead into halftime. The Indians were able to build up a 26-0 third quarter lead with a long run by Ponzio down the far right sideline. Then in the fourth, the lead ballooned to 32-0 after Mikos was repeatedly utilized to eat up the clock with a series of short gains before going in for a touchdown. Late in the game, Madison finally scored after a long kickoff return and a couple of plays, adding a two-point

kick to make the final 32-8. With the win the 7th grade team improves to 9-0 and earns the Shoreline Youth Football Championship for their grade. The win also qualifies them to compete for the State Championship next Saturday at Branford High School at Vanacore field. - Reporting by Kevin Pataky and Ed Tantorski

Winter safety tips from North Haven Fire Chief Vincent Landisio

It’s almost winter. The days are beginning to get shorter, the outside temperature is beginning to get lower and soon it may be cold, icy and snowy. Here in Connecticut, winter brings a change in season and a time to think about home heating safety. Did you know that home heating equipment causes more than 60,000 home fires and hundreds of deaths each year? By taking a few simple precautions, most heating-related fires can be prevented. The National Fire Protection Association has developed the following safety tips to help you stay safe this winter. Best wishes for a warm and safe winter season. - Keep anything that can burn at least three feet from heating equipment (furnace, woodstove, or portable heater). - Do not use your oven to heat your home. - Portable space heaters should be turned off every time you leave the room and before going to bed. - Make sure your fireplace

has a sturdy screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room. - Allow fireplace and woodstove ashes to cool before disposing in a metal container. - Have heating equipment and chimneys inspected and cleaned every year. - Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Test smoke alarms monthly. - Install and maintain carbon monoxide alarms to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Enjoy the winter season. Stay warm, but most of all stay safe.
