Mayor Bazzi Visit
Mayor Bazzi and franchise owner Maureen Winfree discuss the coming improvement to the Van Born corridor.
We were honored to have Dearborn Heights Mayor Bazzi visit our warehouse. The mayor and his team visited our warehouse on Van Born Road as part of his on going Business Tour campaign.
It was exciting to show off our Dearborn Heights office, equipment and, of course, our team. We had a great conversation about our hopes for the city's future, the various ways we engage in the city outside of work and why we choice this spot in the southeast corner of the city - because it's 15 minutes to Downtown Detroit, Western Wayne County and any Downriver community.
We are proud to be a part of the Dearborn Heights community. The future is bright for the Van Born Corridor and we are excited to have a front row sit to it.
Summer is in full swing which means time at the pool. Dearborn Heights Fire Chief Dave Brogan's office provided some tips for keeping you and your guests safe around the pool.
- Secure pool area with a 4 foot high barrier including a self closing and self latching gate.
- Keep a cover on the pool when not in use.
- Consider installing a pool alarm.
- Supervise kids at all times
- Designate a person to watch the water when people are in the pool.
- Never swim alone.
- Inexperinced swimmers should wear U.S. Coast Guard approved life jackets.
- Establish and enforce safety policies in the pool area.
- Add chemicals to water; never add water to chemicals.
- Use proper safety gear including goggles and gloves when handling chemicals.
- Store chemicals in a well ventilated area.
- Do not store flammable materils near gas powered equipment.
Everyone in a home with a pool should know how to respond to a emergency including:
- How to use safety equipment
- Succesfully complete water safety training courses
- First aid
- CPR courses from the Red Cross
Have a safe and fantastic summer!
Saving our Rouge River Watershed
Michigan offers a wealth of natural resources for our enjoyment, none more enjoyable than our water. Dearborn is particularly fortunate to be part of the Rouge River Watershed. Friends of the Rouge, a Dearborn based organization promoting stewardship of the Rouge River ecosystem, provided some easy ways we can all help the watershed.
• If you must use fertilizer, use a slow release formula.
• Be sure to keep fertilizer off paved surfaces and out of drainage paths.
• Don’t dump chemicals, paints, oils into storm drains.
• Repair vehicles in areas where leaks and spills cannot flow into storm drains.
• Clean up animal waste before it rains.
• Don’t use your hose as broom. Sweep debris off your paved areas.
