This recall includes all Nest Protect Smoke + CO alarms. The alarms are made of black or white plastic and are about 5.25 inches square with rounded corners and about 1.5 inches deep. The word “nest” is on a large button on the face of the alarm. Consumers can enable the alarms to be controlled by a computer or a smartphone over a wireless network.

Local Elected Officials, Members of the Community, & Members of the Press,
Each year in May, our Nation celebrates National EMS Week. This week is dedicated to emergency medical technicians everywhere. Here in the community of Lafayette, our EMS team is made up of highly skilled and qualified EMS professionals who dedicate themselves to their community each and every day.
On Monday May 19, 2014, the Lafayette Township Trustees will meet in regular session. At this meeting, a proclamation will be rendered from the board of trustees proclaiming the week of May 18-24, 2014 as National EMS Week in Lafayette Township.
You are hereby cordially invited to attend this event. Members of Lafayette Township Fire Department will be on hand to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to the service they provide to the communities of Lafayette, Chippewa Lake, and Gloria Glens. Afterward, cake and refreshments will be provided and Emergency Medical Technicians will be on hand for an informal “meet-n-greet” session. Both ambulances will also be present and on display.
The meeting will be held on May 19, 2014 at 6:30pm at the Lafayette Township Hall located at 6776 Wedgewood RD Medina, OH 44256.
Recently, southern Medina County Fire Departments, including Lafayette have been pretty busy with multiple incidents requiring numerous resources. Within the last 2 weeks, Lafayette has assisted neighboring Chatham Township Fire Department with a large brush fire in which 80+ acres burned as well as a house fire on Congress RD. Today, departments from Lafayette, Chatham, Westfield, Lodi, & Seville-Guilford took part in a mock motor vehicle accident to raise safety awareness for the recent upcoming 2015 Cloverleaf Prom. Just another way your fire departments are working for you!
Recently, Lafayette Township Board of Trustees approved the purchase of a used zodiac boat. The boat will be used for water operations on Chippewa Lake. The boat, a 1989 Zodiac Hurricane 530, was purchased from BLM Yacht Sales LDT out of Swansea, MA. The boat is 17 feet long and includes a center console, hard bottom, and a 1998 90-horse power outboard motor as well as 2005 trailer used for transporting the unit. In addition, Lafayette Twp. Firefighter’s Association has agreed to donate $1000 towards equipping the unit.
Recently, LTFD Officers met in a regular monthly session. One of the items on the agenda was our mission statement. LTFD believes that our mission statement should not only reflect who we are and what we do, but it should also be something easy to remember. A few personnel who make up the department’s Planning Committee suggested the new Mission Statement to department officers and it was approved at the April 2014 Officer’s Meeting.

It’s that time of year again! Santa has been contacted and he can’t wait to come back to visit the kids and families of Lafayette Twp, Chippewa Lake, & Gloria Glens on their own special day. December 21, 2013 the Lafayette Twp. Firefighters Association will be assisting Santa in some pre-Christmas Day deliveries. The best part is, he’ll be riding on Firetrucks instead of the normal reindeer drawn sleigh, as the reindeer need rest before their big day. Gift collection will be held on Tuesday December 17 & Thursday December 19, 2013 from 7pm to 9pm. A donation of $5 per gift will help benefit the Lafayette Township Firefighter’s Association.
