  • Mike Harwood remembered as a good man and leader

    Michael Harwood cared deeply for his family, his friends and his Sheridan community. And he made a difference in other people’s lives.

    The former Sheridan Police and Fire Commissioner and Sheridan Town Council member of 13 years was “well-respected,” a “hard worker” and stood “for what is right.”

    “He gave his all to whatever he was involved in,” said Brian Harwood, 41, Sheridan, who also called his father, “stubborn,” yet “supportive” and “proud.”

    Michael Allen Harwood, who was born on Christmas Day in 1953 in Noblesville, died on Monday at Riverview Health after a battle with health issues. He was 62.

  • With temperatures dropping for the first time this winter, and chilly temperatures expected for the next week, Indiana State Fire Marshal Jim Greeson is advising caution with space heaters and other forms of alternative heating, as well as a review of smoke alarms.

    “Strongly consider other options before using alternative heating,” says Greeson. “Add insulation or other heat-capturing barriers to window and doors. Wearing warmer clothes and adding blankets will also help with comfort. If you must use space heaters or other forms of alternative heating, take precautions.”

  • The state of Indiana has seen a decline in the number of deaths related to fires, a figure that dropped from 84 in 2014 down to 73 for 2015. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) Division of Fire and Building Safety is praising local first responders across the state for their efforts in working to make Hoosiers more safe.

    “While we never want to see anyone injured or killed in a fire, we’re encouraged to see that fewer people were affected this year,” said Indiana State Fire Marshal Jim Greeson. “We applaud the first responders throughout the state who have worked tirelessly, day and night, to not only protect those in danger, but also to better educate their communities on fire safety.”

    In an effort to better protect Hoosiers, local departments across the state have continued to make smoke detectors available to their communities.
