Fire Safety at the Madison Library

The staff at the Madison Library recently hosted members of the Madison Fire Department for a fire-safety check here at the library.  The Madison fire department reviewed the libraries procedures on evacuation and inspected all the fire safety equipment in the facility, and also reviewed the use of a fire extinguisher for the library staff. The Madison library is a very fire safe facility. 

Thanks to the firemen for coming in!
