Call 811 Before You Dig! 

CAll 811 

Butler Township is taking this time, in association with Columbia Gas of PA, to remind you to call 811 before you start any digging project, large or small. One free call to 811 three days before you dig starts the process of having underground utility lines marked, which reduces the chance of excavators and landowners unintentionally striking a utility line, causing inconvenient outages, harm to themselves or someone else, and/or repair costs. So… Know what’s below…Call 811 before you dig! 

Home Safety Program In Lyndora

The Red Cross conducted a Home Safety Day program on August 1st in the Lyndora Area. The Red Cross had 22 volunteers and three staff members come out to go door to door to distribute the home safety info. Butler Township Volunteer Fire Department 3 has been installing smoke detectors from requests received after the Red Cross visits. The fire department expects to install about 100 smoke detectors from the program.

Grilling Safety

When the warmer weather hits, there’s nothing better than the smell of food on the grill.  The National Fire Prevention Association  states,

“Three out of five households own a gas grill, which translates to a lot of tasty meals. But it also means there’s an increased risk of home fires.  Each year an average of 8,800 home fires are caused by grilling, and close to half of all injuries involving grills are due to thermal burns. While nearly half of the people who grill do it year-round, July is the peak month for grill fires followed by May, June and August.”
