The catoosa county sheriff's office held a seminar at boynton church of god on saturday.

The seminar was designed to educate the worship community on how to protect themselves against danger, such as criminal attacks.

Firearms is not the only avenue of being safe and prepared."

Having that can be the difference between life and death really."

They also talk to residents about what their plans are during an emergency.

Julia wright/executive director of american red cross southeast tn-" it's really important to have your fire safety plan in place.

Know where your meeting spot is.

You have two minutes in a fire to get out safely and so it's really important to have that immediate reaction when that smoke alarm goes off and it's even more important to make sure you have that early detection by having a working smoke alarm in your home.

The fire department says that even if you don't live in an area that they canvass.

You can change your own batteries fairly easy.

William matlock/chattan ooga fire marshal-"they have a test button on them so you want to push that test button to see if it operates.

If not, then you want to see if it has batteries in it or if they've been taken out.

You can also look at the date on the inside and if it is older than ten years old then you need to replace it."

If you live within the city limits the fire department will change your batteries for free.

--vo script-- take a look at this... ...that is red wine flowing from this faucet.

It happened for a few hours wednesday in the northern italian town of castelvetro.

A malfunction at a local winery sent one thousand liters of ready-to-be-bottled wine through the water pipes of about 20 homes.

The wine flowed from faucets and shower heads for a few hours.

Local government officials said there was no health risk to residents.

The town's deputy mayor admitted the glitch was a moment of levity for italians dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.

The health crisis has hit residents of northern italy especially hard.
