City offices will be closed Monday, Oct 5 due to the heavy rains. Monday's trash pickup is postponed until Wednesday.
With the holidays right around the corner, the Wilmington Fire Department would like to remind you to “Cook with Caution.” Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fire and home fire injuries.
To prevent burns to your hands remember to use oven mitts instead of pot holders.
If a fire does start in your kitchen please remember to evacuate the home and call 911 before you try to extinguish the fire. The most important thing to remember is to make sure everyone makes it out safely before using your fire extinguisher. The method to use your fire extinguisher is PASS. Pull, Aim, Squeeze, and Sweep.
