9 Volt Batteries a Fire Hazard

Deputy Chief William Martineau and the New Hampshire State Fire Marshal's Office encourage you to locate your extra batteries and learn how to store them properly.

In July, a fire broke out in a kitchen "junk" drawer which the resident stated she had just cleaned and organized. The fire produced smoke throughout the first floor of the home. In the drawer were spare keys, a cigarette lighter, paper clips, eye glass cleaner, and some batteries in a baggie along with everything else that you would find in a "junk" drawer.

The local fire department determined the cause of the fire to be from a 9 volt battery stored in the same baggie with other batteries. The 9 volt battery rubbed against another battery and ignited the fire. In the homeowner's words, "We were fortunate not have been away for the weekend!"

A 9 volt battery is a fire hazard because the positive and negative posts are on the top, right next to one another. If the ends come in contact with anything metal i.e. aluminum foil, steel wool, paper clip, other batteries, etc. this will create the object to heat up and ignite a fire.

To store, keep in original packaging or keep ends covered. For disposal, make sure that the positive and negative posts are safely wrapped in electrical tape.

Remember to check your smoke alarms each month to ensure your family has the early warning to get out safely if a fire should occur in your home.

 

 

 Windham Fire Department

'Vial of Life' Program

The vial, which looks like a pill bottle has a form to fill out with all your medical information. You place the vial in the refrigerator; place a magnet on your refrigerator and a sticker on your entranceway door. If the Fire Department makes a call to your home and you are unable to communicate or are unconscious, they know from the information in your vial, the proper medical treatment you may require.

The Windham Fire Department will have vials in their ambulances and the department plans to deliver them to the Assisted living facilities.

If residents would like a vial or know someone that would benefit from one, you can call the Fire Department and they will either deliver them or you can pick them up.

Windham was settled in 1719 by Scottish immigrants seeking religious freedom. It represented a small part of a larger settlement, known by the residents as “Nutfield”, which also included the towns or Derry and Londonderry. The official Nutfield settlement’s 300th anniversary is set to be honored in 2019 with towns planning celebrations, parades and many more events to honor that historical birthday. Windham, and some of its original settlers broke away from the original colony and petitioned to charter its own community. In 1742, Gov. Benning Wentworth granted that request and Windham was incorporated. All this month, a town-wide scavenger hunt takes place with questions for the hunt available at Town Hall, Nesmith Library and online at windham.recdesk.com.
