Fire and building safety workshop

At the Sept. 26 Brown Bag Lunch sponsored by the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce, the topic is fire safety.

Phil Schneider, deputy fire chief for the Sandy Fire Department, will speak and provide demonstrations to those gathered at the monthly workshop.

Schneider will teach about the importance of having an address visible; the benefits of having a Knox-box rapid entry system; the need for after-hours exit signs; and what’s in a fire safety kit. He also will share some dos and don’ts related to extension cords.

Schneider also is planning live-fire demonstrations using fire extinguishers so participants can see how to use fire extinguishers in their businesses.

The lunch is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, in the chamber office, 38963 Pioneer Blvd. The bring-your-own-lunch workshop is free to chamber members and $5 to others.

For more information, call the chamber, 503-668-4006.

A ribbon cutting organized by the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce will recognize the reopening of The Buzz @ Bakers Barbershop, now known as The Local Buzz.
