What does it mean to serve your community? It means you are doing something primarily for the benefit and goodwill of another person or group of people. When we serve, we look outside of ourself, beyond our own problems, and seek to bring value to others.When we serve we get a richer perspective of the world. Serving an essential part of preparing yourself to take responsibility as open-minded citizen in the global community that we live in today. While performing community service, people of all ages have the opportunity to see first-hand just how much their work can have an impact on the world. When you serve locally you get to interact with your entire community of people. These people will usually have vastly different stories and backgrounds and you can’t help but grow in understanding and empathy as you develop a global perspective.Doors open when you serve your community.You may start with one idea in mind and then realize that you’re drawn to and/or have skills in something totally different. You can build a social network, or discover a new organization of interest. Who knows, you may even stumble across your dream job by meeting your future colleague or next job reference.When we serve our community we strengthen our values like honesty, humbleness, gratefulness, respect, and sincerity.These are skills and lessons that cannot usually be taught in any classroom, but by being responsible in your service you learn to think beyond ‘I, me, myself’ and get a wider perspective of life and others around you.Serving your community is actually good for your body. Studies have shown that serving your community makes people feel physically healthier, manage chronic health conditions and lower stress!When we serve our community we get to share our skills and experiences from which someone else can benefit. Serving your community can be a prime way to share your gifts.Serving your community is a great outlet for meeting others to broaden your network and find others with similar interests. Serving can put you face-to-face with people already right in your community—plus, you’re already bonding over a shared passion. You can create lasting friendships with those you may not have otherwise met in your day-to-day grind.Serving your community makes your community that much better for yourself and everyone in it! 💕 It means so much to take the time to make the community that you live in better. You can have a huge impact with just a small investment of your time.Come serve with us! We are a wonderful bunch of people who live in your community who are just taking one step at a time to make it better! We love and support the men and women who volunteer for our Fire Department! We want to make sure they have all they need and more to be the best they can be for the rest of our community! Message us to find out more! We would love to hear from you! 💕 ... See MoreSee Less

2 weeks ago I lost everything bc of one

Was it the Milwaukee system?

I want to personally thank the fire department's coming and putting my toolbox out it was my batteries that were on charge I want to let everybody know please unplug your chargers if you're not using them I've never seen it happen before and I don't want to see it again.

12/23 I lost several animals, 25 years of tools, my livelihood and numerous other items from a lithium battery

That’s really concerning. I consider Milwaukee Tools to be high quality and would not expect something like this. I have all Milwaukee tools and same box…scary!

Definitely don't leave batteries on your charger. Most the power tool chargers are not maintenance chargers, they are trickle chargers. A maintenance charger will shut off once the battery has peaked. A trickle charger will continue to slightly charge the battery. Batteries will ignite when over charged. I have heard of this happening before.

You all did a great job knocking down/extinguishing the fire. Unfortunately we will see many more lithium battery fires.

Yes, I was reading where manufacturers are trying to start using sodium ion batteries which are less prone to fires

Thank you! Great advice! Yes, the best protection is prevention!

I had this after I dropped a battery when I tried to recharge it the next day it burned up like this so I guess they are not shock proof

Lithium batteries certainly have their risk. I charge mine when I am home only so at least if it goes sideways I am there to do something.

That’s why it’s good to have insurance on your tools..

Counterfeit batteries will do this. A local business here burned to the ground after a cheap knockoff battery left on the charger overnight started on fire.

I always monitor charging, and check the temp regularly too. I even due with my phone.

Thank you for info and for providing great service to our community!

We have that same exact toolbox in our home garage. Milwaukee Tool may want to know & look into this. Kris Albee

Aw fuck man that’s terrible. I always worried about that so I turn off my power supply end of day

Lesson to be learned, don't buy Milwaukee 😅😂

Good job 👏

That's just fuel for fire🫠

George Failing Someone else batteries doing the same

Thank you for all you do - and for the information.

Milwaukee Tool might want to look into this.

Wow they got lucky!!

Tony Martin probably Overcharging 🙈
