    CARIBOU — With the fall season in full swing, we’ve reached a time of the year when home improvement is at the forefront of many peoples’ minds. As we move well into October, the leaves have already begun to change, and autumn has ushered in a new batch of bright colors to the Aroostook County scenery. As homeowners begin raking up the freshly fallen leaves, some may also be pondering the possibility of a home improvement that will provide a fresh look and feel to their homes, as all those residing in Aroostook County gear up for another harsh winter.

    CARIBOU — North Lakes Fire and Rescue Chief Darren R. Woods was recognized in Augusta on Oct. 1 at the annual meeting of the Maine State Fire Chief’s Association. 
    At that meeting, Chief Woods received Maine Chief Fire Officer II certification. This certification is slightly different than others because it is not the result of one class.  Rather, a panel of peers reviews one’s entire career, with scoring based on education, personal accomplishments within the fire service and service to the community.

    Members of the Caribou Fire Department do their part to help students learn about fire safety through multiple fire department field trips for different schools throughout the year, but parents also need to talk with their children about fire safety — including an escape plan. Pictured here during a field trip to the fire station this spring were Hilltop students with firefighter Dylan Cyr.

    CARIBOU — Firefighters have been working with Caribou students to help kids “Learn Not to Burn” since the 1980s, but the lessons kids learn in schools need to be reinforced at home.
    “One of the things parents need to talk to their kids about is an escape plan — making sure they know how to get out of the house and making sure they have a safe meeting,” explained Caribou Fire Chief Scott Susi. “That way, they know everyone is out.”
