Check Your Smoke Detectors!
Islamorada Fire Rescue would like to remind all citizens that October 3-9 is Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme is “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With” , and Islamorada Fire Rescue wants to ensure every residence is equipped with properly working smoke detectors. If you do not have a working smoke detector, the Islamorada Firefighters Benevolent Association will provide them at no cost. To inquire about obtaining a smoke detector, or for questions about testing, mounting, or maintaining a detector, please contact Islamorada Fire Rescue at 305-522-0333. Supplies are limited, so call today!

Rotary sponsors high school Interact Club
Coral Shores’ Interact Club is a community-minded high school group that follows the same principles as their sponsors – the Upper Keys Rotary Club and the Key Largo Rotary Club. Throughout the year, the CHS’ Interact Club will practice “Service Above Self” through fundraising, supporting causes like the Burton Memorial Church food bank and Forgotten Soldiers, and volunteering at community events like the Chili Cook-off and the Gigantic Nautical Flea Market. Ms Carmen Kelley serves as the teacher liaison/sponsor for the local Coral Shores Interact Club, which meets in her classroom after school on Mondays at 2:30 pm.
