Say Hello to Heavy Rescue Truck 73: It is almost here! Lakeland will be receiving a new Heavy Rescue Truck (73) in the coming days. The new Pierce Heavy Rescue Truck 73 will be replacing the current Heavy Rescue Truck 14. The entire Lakeland fleet, with the exception of ARFF2 and Ford Medical Rescue Trucks, are Pierce Engines. Pierce manufactures their vehicles in Appleton, Wisconsin and before the arrival of every apparatus LFD personnel personally inspect every nut and bolt on the apparatus before it is handed over. Then Al Jarvis, LFD's Maintenance Supervisor, personally drives it down to ensure its safe delivery. Check this video out highlighting the build and the inspections taking place in Appleton, Wisconsin! Heavy Rescue Truck 14 is 16 years old. The Lakeland Fire Department plans for the future by amortizing every major piece of equipment it has so that new equipment can be acquired in an effort to have the most dependable, safest, and efficient equipment to serve its community with, all while being extremely responsible with public resources. Heavy Rescue 14 will stay on board a bit longer as a reserve truck. The inspections by LFD Fire Officers and line personnel will continue through Friday and the new Truck should be out of snowy Wisconsin and in sunny Florida by April 1, 2015.

[Latest Airdate: July 6, 2017] [Original Airdate: March 6, 2014] Chippewa Falls' roots are literally roots -- of the white pines that fed the world's largest lumber mill and put Chippewa Falls on the map. Well, the lumberjacks may be gone, but John learned very quickly that the hard working, harder playing character of Chippewa Falls is still alive and well. Know what else he learned? Leinenkugel's started here in 1867 to serve the thirsty lumberjacks. The supercomputer was invented here by Seymour Cray. The largest dog park and the second oldest zoo in Wisconsin both call this city home. And the Yellowstone Trail runs right through Chippewa Falls. Right? John was impressed, too. But as you probably know by now, John isn't most impressed by just the facts. It's the residents that put the smile on his face - and the knowledge that he didn't have to have a membership to get into the local supper club! As this episode shows, Chippewa Falls is not for members only -- it's for everybody! Episode #309

Water Damage always comes as a surprise. Whether it’s a flood, a broken pipe or leaking dishwasher, it always happens when you don’t expect it. It’s important not to panic because you must act quickly – before the water damage becomes even bigger. Imagine you wake up in the morning. You walk into the kitchen to prepare your morning coffee and your feet are suddenly cold and wet. You look down and you’re not sure if it’s a dream or reality. “What should I do now?” Confusion, frustration and lots of other emotions are going through your mind. This is why Flood Damage Pro is here, to give you some first aid tips on what to do when you have water damage in your property (big or small). 1. Stop the water. That means either shutting off the main water valve, the local valve, or placing a bucket to catch a dripping leak. This will make sure water doesn’t continue to flow and cause even more damage. 2. Safety first. Turn off the electricity, but only if you can reach it safely. You can’t be too careful in these kinds of situations. 3. Prevent damage to your possessions. Move furniture, electronics, and other wood, paper, or fabric items out of the path of the water. Put styrofoam or foil under the legs of wooden furniture to keep them off wet carpets. After the first aid (shutting down the water main and the electricity), the next thing you must do is call your insurance company. It takes about 48 hours for mold to start growing, and you want to prevent that from happening. By the way, make sure not to use the word “flood” if it’s not really a flood. There is a big difference in the insurance world between flood and water damage. You want to ask your insurance company three things: “Am I covered for water damage by the insurance?”, “What is my deductible?”, “How fast can someone come and take care of the situation?” The insurance company will be able to help you with the repair. They will either send their own adjuster or give you the green light to call a professional water damage company to repair and restore your property. Remember – you are the customer and you decide who to work with. You need to be comfortable with the water damage restoration company working for you, and you should choose the most professional and knowledgeable staff to do it. Choosing the right company will save you a lot of headaches. We know, since we were called more than once to replace other companies who did more damage than repair. Once the professionals arrive, you’ll feel better. They will help you and your family move on with normal life in no time. Remember, if a larger area of your home has been affected don't attempt to treat it yourself, it may be dangerous. Contact Flood Damage Pro for help. We have a toll free 24/7 emergency hotline – 1-800 474-6205, so don’t hesitate to call us right now!

Recorded: Wednesday, August 24, 2016 In small museums, the staff wears many hats and have many jobs including the responsibility of caring for collections. It is a fundamental responsibility of museum management to support professional development and to make sure that all of their staff has knowledge of current standards and collection care practices. The staff should be offered training opportunities and encouraged to take advantage of internal training programs and mentoring support for all full-time staff, part-time staff, and volunteers. Security, facility and events staff, even though they do not handle objects, should also be trained in collections care techniques since they work in close proximity to collections, educate the public, and need to understand their role in the overall preventive conservation measures and requirements of the museum. How do you make sure your staff gets the training they need to do their jobs? The focus of this webinar is building professional development opportunities for the small museums staff and volunteers. Internal training programs might include developing a policy and procedure manual, physical training programs, topic specific topic lectures, and weekly and monthly meeting structures where training focus is emphasized and presented. External opportunities include developing multi-museum training programs, exchanges of staff with other regional museum of similar size and collection base, as well as attending specific training schools, workshops, webinars and other professional events as tight budget restraints of the museum allow. Training is not only for newly hired staff and volunteers, but also for senior staff who help with mentoring new staff and volunteers and to keep senior staff current with to existing and new policies and procedures for collections care. This webinar will provide you with proven, working scenarios that you can take on board and develop to fit the training specifics for your staff and collections. http://www.connectingtocollections.org/all-aboard-engineering-collections-care-training-for-small-museums/
