Saved by the Fire Department!

A few weeks ago, during the early morning hours one of the smoke alarms in my home malfunctioned.  Since the ceilings in the house are quite high (cathedral style) there was no way I would ever be able to reach this cranky, noisy alarm.  I lived with it for two days, trying unsuccessfully to find someone who could take care of it for me.  My daughter of Canopy Crafts, thought she remembered from somewhere the local Fire Department would come out to change batteries in smoke alarms.  She called them for me and low and behold they were at my house before I could even get back there!  Who knew they provided this service.

They not only changed and quieted the noisy alarm, but provided the battery and went on throughout the house to check all the other alarms.  They also said to contact them twice a year, when daylight savings occurs, to change the batteries.  Who knew!  Of course this would be scheduled when they were not busy.

So for their help I thought I'd take some cookies over to the fire station for them to enjoy.
Here's a picture of my favorite cookies, once again the Cran-Pistachio and now the Salted Caramel Sugar cookies.

It's hard to read, but the little sign says "Thank You, for all you do".
I hope they enjoy.
Thanks for looking at my blog.
