Making sure that you child is safe in your vehicle is what this Saturday’s old child safety seat roundup is all about. The collection of old child seats will be held at Kohl’s Department Store parking lot at 6100 Broadway in Quincy this Saturday from 10 until noon. For exchange of your old car seat, you will get a $10 Kohl's gift certificate for the first 300 seats exchanged.
On Wednesday, a Quincy man and his young child died in a fire at 515 South 17th Street. The call came in around 2:40 a.m. Quincy Police were on the scene first and pulled a person out of a window. That person told the police there were two others in the back of the house. The Quincy Fire Department arrived and pulled the other two out. They were taken by ambulance to Blessing Hospital. 25-year-old old Daniel S. Dissler and four-month-old Hunter Dissler did not survive the fire. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
If you were there early Saturday at the 10th Annual Polar Plunge at Moorman Lake in Quincy you know how thick the ice was and how hard the Quincy Fire Department worked to open the water at the beach area.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge will be held this Saturday at Moorman Lake in Upper Moorman Park in Quincy. There is still time to sign up to "plunge" by going to www.plungeillinois.com. If you raise $75 or more you will also receive a nice hooded sweatshirt for helping Special Olympics Illinois.
With the onset of winter staring us in the face it is time to remind you of some safety precautions you can take to make your wintertime a safe time. The following tips from the Quincy Fire Department are recommended:
The Quincy Fire Department has placed wreaths with red lights on them at all of their firehouses around the city of Quincy. The idea is to have nothing but red lights on the wreath which would mean a fire free Christmas season for homes in the city. Any home fires that occur would cause the Fire Department to change one of the red bulbs to a white bulb. So the goal is to keep the wreaths red and not white.
The Quincy Fire Department has announced the names of the 8 winners of fire escape ladders given away by the Fire Department. The winners names were drawn from all the registrants from the Fire Prevention Week Kickoff event at the Quincy Mall held on October 19th.
