Safety is No Accident
Think before you act !
Be Careful, we want you alive !
Here's some surprising  facts about  
FIRE


make sure you have operating smoke detectors
                               preferably at least one on each floor of your home .
                    More is Better !!

                  THESE DEVICES SAVE LIVES !

   The PARC home page is always under construction, its up-to-date, so     check back often for  News and HAM activities effecting our members      and the hams in Southeast Idaho .    The webmaster makes no promises as to spelling and grammar  !! 

FYI:
This test Pattern has circles, not ovals, if you see ovals, chances are your windows settings are incorrect for your monitor.

PLUS: if you have a gas furnace , hot water heater,
fireplace insert, anything that uses combustion
you need a CO detector
