North Metro Fire is continuing an ongoing mission to protect the lives of children by spearheading local efforts for "The Battery Controlled."
This national partnership was launched by Safe Kids Worldwide and Energizer. Their mission is to share the information with parents and caregivers about the potential risks of swallowing lithium batteries.
These batteries are found in:
- MP3 players
- Mini remote control devices that unlock cars
- Reading Lights
Many people do not consider these batteries a risk, however in some devices it's easy for children to remove the back to reach the battery. If swallowed the saliva immediately triggers an electrical current that causes a chemical reaction that can severely burn the esophagus in as little as two hours.

the Precious Stories
With the new year there comes new memories and stories. We at A Precious Child, wanted to share a couple stories with you. Thanks to your time, efforts, and contributions, you have made the lives of others easier and better.
Joe is in his mid 20's and a single father of two. He works full time to provide for his small family. However, even working full time, he was barely scraping by. When he learned that his mother was diagnosed with cancer, he didn't even hesitate, he quickly moved himself and his family in with her to act as caretaker. Providing for his family was now almost an insurmountable challenge with his mothers medical bills added on top.
However, when he came into A Precious Child to shop for his family, not once did he complain. He was so grateful for being able to receive clothing for his two young girls and some comfortable lounge wear for his mother. He is extremely optimistic about the future and knows that he and his family are strong and will be able to get through anything, especially with the help from A Precious Child.
A teenage girl came into A Precious Child to shop for clothes with her family. She was certain she wasn't going to be able to attend prom because her family couldn't afford a dress and never imagined A Precious Child would have a dress for her so she could go. Thanks to a donation from a generous donor of a prom dress, she was able to find the perfect dress that fit her beautifully!
