AN ALTERNATIVE TO THROWING AWAY YOUR CURRENT UNUSED, UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES: consider donating them to Chatham Cares Community Pharmacy [CCCP] in Siler City, a non-profit community-based organization operated by a licensed pharmacist and committed to reducing health disparities by providing access to quality pharmacy services to the low-income, uninsured, and underinsured residents of Chatham County.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER CHECK
Have you tested or used your fire extinguisher in the past year? United Fire and Safety Equipment Company will be at The Gathering Place for the annual recertification of your fire extinguishers at a cost of $8.50 by cash, check or credit card. They will also sell new smoke alarms and extinguishers. If your extinguisher can be refilled, the cost will be $16.50 (2.5 lbs.) or $23.50 (5 lbs.). The extinguishers will be returned to your home after refilling.
Finally, at 12:00 noon, they will teach you the easy and safe way to extinguish a real fire. The lesson costs $10.00 and the company must have advance reservations by Thursday, May 18, 2017 to be sure they bring enough fire extinguishers to use during the training. Don’t wait to read the instructions while the flames on your kitchen stove are growing.
