Fire Chief Joseph Stevens of the Union Fire Company #1 of Manchester PA and Harrisburg Fire Chief Brian Enterline will hold a joint press conference at 1:30 p.m. Friday, October 27, 2017, in the Rotunda of the State Capitol to provide information on the dangers of hoverboards in our region.
Hoverboards have been responsible for several fires in the area, including one at 210 Royal Drive in Manchester earlier this week and the tragic fire that occurred on March 10th on Lexington Street in the City of Harrisburg.
Earlier this year, the Consumer Products Safety Commission issued a warning to consumers to stop using LayZ Board brand self-balancing scooters (known as hoverboards).
More than 3000 of these units were imported into the United States in recent years.
