BLIZZARD TIPS

  Adopt-A-Fire Hydrant

Fire hydrants covered with snow waste valuable time during a fire. Please help the fire department to help you and your neighbors.  If you have a fire hydrant near your home, please keep it clear of snow. 

 Power Outage Safety

Keep your flashlights charged.  If you loose power please avoid candles as a light source. 

Please have fresh batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

DO NOT use your oven as a heating source for your home.

Fireplace Safety

Dispose of fireplace ashes in a metal container and leave them outside away from any structures for at least 12 hours.   Dispose of your ashes only after they have cooled properly.
