Snake safety is topic at fire station lecture

Citizen Staff Writer



Anyone looking for a slithering fun and educational time can find it Wednesday at the Northwest Fire Station 34, 8165 N. Wade Road.

Fire Capt. Adam Goldberg will give a snake demonstration from 10:30 to 11 a.m., according to a news release from the fire department.

Goldberg will help explain how snakes benefit the desert and how to help keep rattlesnakes out of the yard.

People who need a snake removed from their property should call 911 or a pest control service.

“No one without proper training should pick up a rattlesnake, even a dead one,” the release said. “Reflex bites are possible from a snake that has been dead several hours.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
