This week was the start of the Cayuga County DMV Office’s Donate Life Month and County Clerk Sue Dwyer says it has been the hottest kick off week they’ve ever had.
The week began with the DMV staff serving coffee and donuts. On Friday, they wanted to give out popcorn to promote organ donations. Dwyer says the staff made the first batch and suddenly the fire alarm sounded and the building had to be evacuated.
Dwyer said Auburn firefighters arrived “lickety-split” and quickly determined that the cause of the alarm was the popcorn machine.
Fortunately, the staff made enough in the first batch to share with the public and some of the firefighters.
