Beach Reopened Following Water Plant Leak

marysville water plantEmergency crews were called to the Marysville Water Filtration Plant at 1535 River Road  about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday for a fluoride leak.  According to Marysville Chief Of Public Safety, Tom Konick, emergency crews were able to contain the fluoride to the building, however there was a leak from the south side of the building into a drain, and from there it moved into the St. Clair River.   It is reported that the tank contained some 1,000 gallons, and it is not known how much fluoride leaked from it.   Crews from the St. Clair County Hazmat Team, St. Clair County Emergency Management, and Marysville Police and Fire responded to the call.  At this time, the swimming advisory pertaining to the hydrofluorosilicic acid spill along the Marysville beach area has been lifted by the St. Clair County Health Department. Recent test results indicated all levels were within normal range.  Marysville Chrysler Beach is still CLOSED at this time due to elevated E.coli levels. Water quality samples will be collected until the E. coli test results are within the acceptable range.  All other public beaches are open at this time.  (con’t)

9-1-1 — The Origin!

Have you ever wondered how 9-1-1 came to be the emergency number to call?  Reports say that in 1957, the National Association of Fire Chief recommended a single number for reporting fires, but, it wasn’t until 1967, ten years later, that the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice began the process…

9-1-1 — The Origin!

9-1-1Have you ever wondered how 9-1-1 came to be the emergency number to call?  Reports say that in 1957, the National Association of Fire Chief recommended a single number for reporting fires, but, it wasn’t until 1967, ten years later, that the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice began the process to establish an easy to remember number to be used nationally.  The number 9-1-1 was chosen because it was simple to dial, and shore and easy for anyone to memorize.  On February 16, 1968, 9-1-1 became official, with the first call placed by Senator Rankin Fite from Alabama. By 1976, 17% of the US population had 9-1- 1. Today, about 99% of the US population has a way to reach a 9-1-1 operator for service in an emergency.  Each year, some 240 million calls are made to 9-1-for police, fire and medical emergencies.  There are a number of questions an operator will ask, when you call 9-1-1, and it is a good idea to practice with your family how you would address an emergency situation, especially when asking for assistance through 9-1-1.
