Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time

This weekend we convert from Daylight Savings Time to  Standard Time. This is an excellent time to also make sure that your smoke alarm is working and change the batteries.

In a fire situation, early warning is critical to survival. The types of materials that are burning in today’s home fire are far more deadlier then material found in our parents and grandparents home. The prevalent use of synthetics (plastics and other composites) make for a “witches brew”  of toxic smoke. The time for you to safely escape is on average less than 3-minutes so time is of the essence.

Last week the region experienced a tragedy where an infant lost his life in a house fire in a neighboring county. Local media is reporting that there was a least one non-functioning smoke alarm in the area of the fire’s origin.  In the United States more than 23 million homes are at risk with non-working smoke alarms. In fact 2/3rds of all fatal fires occur in homes with either no smoke alarms or inoperable smoke alarms. One startling statistic is that the number of homes with an inoperable alarm outnumber those with no smoke alarm.

Goochland County Fire-Rescue wants you and your family to have the best chance of surviving a fire in your home. This weekend as you change your clock, inspect and maintain your smoke alarm and change the batteries.

Goochland County Board of Supervisors Adopted Strategic Plan
In the fall of 2013, the Goochland County Board of Supervisors undertook the creation of a Strategic Plan for the County. Feedback gathered from citizens, businesses and employees helped to formulate this Plan.
The Plan provides the overarching framework for the County’s work and focus. Realization of the vision, mission and goals occurs through the achievement of the objectives identified in the Plan. The objectives are achieved through strategies and initiatives that take place within each County department. Through the County’s budget process, departments are allocated funding to carry out the strategies and initiatives identified in the Strategic Plan.
Annually, the Board of Supervisors plans to provide a “report card” to the citizens and businesses of the County. This report card will tell citizens what progress has been made in reaching the goals and will serve to keep the County accountable.
This Plan will be assessed continuously to ensure that it remains dynamic and flexible while providing the necessary framework and direction for the future. Public meetings on the initial Strategic Plan draft were held on June 25th and June 26th. Based on that feedback, further changes were made, and the final version below as adopted at the September 2nd Board meeting.
