In the next program of Joplin Insider, viewers will be
reminded of simple steps they can follow in order to stay safe during the
holiday season. Both Police Chief Matt Stewart and Fire Chief Jim Furgerson
visit with host Lynn Onstot, Public Information Officer, about these topics.
Fire safety during the holiday season includes extinguishing
candles, turning off stoves or ovens, and turning out lights when leaving the
home, as well as proper usage of electrical cords and fireplaces. Personal
safety and theft protection is a topic to remind citizens about as they go out
shopping, purchase items online, and have more deliveries to their homes. More helpful
tips during the holidays are discussed during the show.
