FIRE SAFETY
 
FRANK CIUFO, SPRING LAKE FIRE CHIEF GAVE A VERY INFORMATIVE PRESENTATION ON FIRE SAFETY.  HE STRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF SMOKE ALARMS AND CO DETECTORS, STATING THAT EVEN IF YOU HAVE COMBINATION SMOKE AND CO DETECTORS ON THE CEILING, PURCHASE 2 PLUG INS AND PLACE THEM IN THE HALLWAY BY BEDROOMS AND LIVING AREAS.  THESE CAN BE PURCHASED IN MOST HARDWARE STORES AS WELL AS LOWES AND HOME DEPOT.  IF THE CO ALARM ACTIVATES, CALL 9-1-1, LEAVE THE HOUSE.  DON'T VENTILATE YOUR HOME SO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CAN DETECT THE PRESENCE OF CO.  REPLACE BATTERIES ON A SPECIFIC DAY EACH YEAR.  FRANK HAS PICKED BLACK FRIDAY FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
 
 
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE WITH EDITH: EXIT DRILLS IN THE HOME
 
HAVE A HOME ESCAPE PLAN.  PRACTICE YOUR  HOME ESCAPE PLAN. KNOW 2 WAYS OUT.  FEEL THE DOOR WITH THE BACK OF YOUR HAND.  IF HOT, FIND ANOTHER ESCAPE ROUTE.  CRAWL LOW IN SMOKE.  HAVE A SPOT AWAY FROM THE HOUSE WHERE ALL MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD WILL MEET AFTER ESCAPING FROM A FIRE.
 
IF YOU HAVE A KITCHEN FIRE, DON'T THROW WATER ON A GREASE OR OIL FIRE.  USE THE PROPER FIRE EXTINGUISHER.  IF THERE IS A LOCALIZED FIRE IN THE OVEN KEEP THE OVEN DOOR SHUT UNTIL THE FIRE EXTINGUISHES ITSELF.

A second hat was worn by John today, being our speaker and discussing his experience doing business with the Japanese during his career of selling advertising space for several magazines.  His first call on Diamond Alkali in Ohio for a wastewater magazine was almost his last call when he was asked to leave since he didn't know anything about what his potential customer did.  This changed his approach doing his homework on the water resource industry (wastewater and sewage treatment technologies including plant visits).  His next career move was to an office supply magazine where he was exposed to twelve Japanese salesman of trading companies who ultimately became presidents of their companies (Minolta, Canon, Panasonic, Ricoh).  These people grew very successful US businesses by "ASKING THE CUSTOMER WHAT THEY NEEDED IN A PRODUCT AND GIVING IT TO THEM." 
 
Japan had good skills in cameras after WWII.  This group of twelve started repairing Japanese cameras, meeting in Times Square, making the repairs and selling innovative cameras that replaced the Kodak brand which was the leader.  Kodak had become complacent and forgot to ask the customer what new features they needed in a product.   Next the Japanese camera companies moved into copiers.  They would never say no to a salesman like John, but wouldn't pursue business unless it made economic sense.  John developed a personal relationship with the future president of Minolta
