Today on DelmarvaLife –
First reponders are often the primary line of defense for you and your family. They respond to an evolving variety of dangerous situations. When it comes to firefighters on Delmarva, many have made a career out of providing assistance at the scene of an emergency, and many other volunteer their service. We learn about those volunteers who can get involved through the Delaware Volunteer Firefighters Association.
We’ve all learned how to manage day-to-day activities remotely. For the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Department, the whole remote situation has helped them fight crime through the pandemic. We learn more about that and see some fugitives wanted by local law enforcement through Crime Stoppers.
Many are looking forward to the milder weather ahead, but we are still a few weeks away from spring. On Delmarva, you should expect the unexpected when it comes to weather and prepare for the unexpected as well. We walk with State Farm Agent, Billy Reese about winter weather insurance claims.
Life can get pretty complicated and, when it comes to navigating any type of challenge, having correct information is crucial. The same holds true when it comes to you home’s heating and air conditioning. Not being well educated on the ins and outs of your system can lead to misconceptions. Katie discusses some of those misconceptions with Mindy Allen Townsend of A&A Companies.
Brandywine Valley SPCA welcomed more than 100 dogs and cats from Fort Worth, Texas, to help shelters struggling as a result of the challenging weather there. This was in addition to the 100 animals already scheduled to arrive from Louisiana. We talk with the shelter’s marketing director about this influx of homeless pets.
In today’s Monday Memories, we look back at 2014 when Jimmy and Lisa went head to head with WBOC Chief Meteorologist Dan Satterfield and WBOC Meteorologist Mike Lichniak in a recipe challenge.
