Have you checked your fire extinguisher lately? If not, bring it to the Eagle Harbor Yacht Club's fire extinguisher safety event on Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the parking lot of the Winslow Wharf Marina, located at 141 Parfitt Way SW next to The Chandlery and Pegasus Coffee House.
Members will be serving free hot dogs and a technician will be on-hand to do a free inspection of fire extinguishers and offer guidance on picking the right one for your needs-- whether it's for your home, car, or boat.
There is an $8.50 cost for servicing of reusable fire extinguishers; this periodic servicing is a requirement for boaters.
The Chandlery is offering a 20% discount on any purchase of hand-held flares. All boaters are required to have non-expired flares on board.
During the event, organizers also will be accepting expired flares and unwanted fireworks for safe disposal.
