Deputy Chief Ray Larson of the Deerfield Bannockburn Fire District is our guest this month. He discusses the path to becoming a firefighter, specific fire and life safety tips, when to call 911, and some of the unusual situations they’ve responded to. Follow the Fire Dept. on Facebook for more safety tips and news updates.


Bookending the conversation, Library Director Amy Falasz-Peterson tells us about the new Giving Tree project the Library Board has been working on. A reception honoring the first group of honorees will be held on Thursday, March 9 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the library’s front lobby and is open to the public. Finally, Multimedia Librarian Ted Gray recommends two TV shows, American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson and recent Oscar winner for Best Documentary, O. J.: Made in America.
