Attention:
Even with the snow melting please be diligent in making sure all ventilation piping on your homes are clear of snow and ice! Any assistance with removal of snow from fire hydrants is also greatly appreciated!

Fire Safety Tip:
As the temperatures finally get colder be mindful of your chimney for both traditional fire places and alternative heating sources. Be sure that your chimney or vent pipes are clean and clear of obstructions! Be mindful not to overload electrical circuits with space heaters and be mindful of ventilation with kerosene and other fuel burning heaters as they can present a CO hazard.
