Stuart Riddell of Issaquah and other residents got their fire extinguishers recharged or replaced when Gabe Woods of FireMasters visited the Waldo Point Harbor parking lot on October 28.
Stuart and Emily (behind the camera) stopped by to refill 3 extinguishers. That would be Emily, aka the Fire Lady, from her days as the FHA Emergency Preparedness gal. A special thanks to Stuart, who—in his role as the FHA Emergency Preparedness guy many years ago—first brought the FireMaster services to Issaquah. It’s now an annual thing.
For the second year the Conservation Corp North Bay (CCNB) has teamed with the FHA and Environmental Committee to collect and recycle electronic waste. We had 37 participants drop off a total of 1,221 pounds of e-waste. All in all a good haul, including 419 lbs of old-style TVs, 161 lbs of household appliances, 117 lbs of laptops and 432 lbs of mixed e-waste. All those hard drives, towers, cell phones, cords and wires add up.
Mark your calendars for next year’s e-waste collection events:
