COMMUNITY NEWS


Golf Cart Charging Safety

Golf carts are an inherent part of our community in Peachtree City. Each year though, golf carts are involved in a number of accidents that result in personal injury, death, fires, and property damage. In an effort to prevent such accidents, the Peachtree City Fire Rescue Department asks everyone that owns, operates, or cares for golf carts to follow the safety tips offered below.

Charging Golf Cart Batteries

  • Safely charging a golf cart battery is of the utmost importance.  Overheated lead-acid batteries can explode.  Follow the manufacturer's instructions for your brand of cart and heed all safety tips and warnings.
  • Always turn off the golf cart ignition key and place the cart in neutral before starting the battery charger.
  • Use only a UL Listed Industrial Battery Charger that is properly matched to the golf cart per the manufacturer's specifications.
  • The electrical outlet that the charger is plugged in to should be a grounded outlet, have an appropriate size circuit breaker, and be a GFI (Ground Fault Interruption) receptacle or have surge protection.
  • Never use an extension cord to charge a golf cart
  • Have batteries regularly maintained by "trained and authorized personnel." Old batteries are increasingly susceptible to off-gassing (flammable or toxic gasses).
  • It is preferable to charge a golf cart outside, but is acceptable to charge them in a garage as long as the door or windows are open for ventilation.
  • Have a rate of rise heat detector installed in your garage or golf cart charging area to provide early warning in case of a fire.

Care & Maintenance of Golf Cart Batteries

  • A full safety inspection of a golf cart by a certified professional is recommended at least once a year.
  • Always work in a well-ventilated area.
  • Do not smoke while working on golf cart batteries.
  • Inspect batteries for damage, leaks, and/or cracks in the outer case. A sign of a leak is a smell of rotten eggs.
  • Check "flooded" (liquid filled) batteries regularly to make sure there is enough distilled water to cover the lead plates.
  • Do not overfill batteries. This can cause the liquid to boil during charging.
  • Ensure all connections are tight.
  • Inspect your golf cart daily before use.
  • If the golf cart is in need of repairs, it should not be driven or placed on a charger.
  • If you have a battery acid spill, pour baking soda on it before cleaning it up.
  • Wash skin thoroughly with cold water if skin is exposed to battery acid.

For further information or if you have questions, please contact Assistant Fire Marshal Jeff Felmet at 770-631-2091 or jfelmet@peachtree-city.org

McMorris to Speak on Great Depression, Sign Books on Thursday

Author Kristina McMorris will sign books and speak on "The Great Depression and Shocking Scoops from the Newsroom" in relation to the historical background and plot of her novel, Sold on a Monday, at Peachtree City Library on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 11 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. On-site book sales will be provided by Book Miser.

Sold on a Monday tells the fictional story of ambitious reporter Ellis Reed who, in 1931, photographed a pair of young siblings on a farmhouse porch next to a heartrending sign: “2 children for Sale.” With the help of newspaper secretary Lillian Palmer, Ellis writes an article to accompany the photo, capturing the hardships of American families during the Great Depression and generating national attention. Ellis’s career skyrockets, but the piece also leads to consequences more devastating than he and Lily ever imagined—and it will take risking everything they value to unravel the mystery and set things right.

Water Quality Reminder:  Little Things Can Enhance Our Water Quality

Stormwater runoff with excessive amounts of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers is a significant threat to the quality of our water.  Please take the following steps to protect the water quality in our lakes and streams:

  • Limit the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
  • Do not apply fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides if heavy rain is predicted.
  • Rather than broadcasting herbicides, spot treat only those areas that contain weeds.
  • Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural state with trees and other native vegetation that require little or no fertilizer.
  • Properly dispose any unused pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Do not dump unused fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides down a storm drain.
