Another big snowstorm — please help your fire department by shoveling out your nearest hydrant!
The volunteer firefighters of Station 55 were on duty around the clock at your local firehouses during the recent significant snowstorm of Friday, February 5 and Saturday, February 6. When the storms rage, your firefighters are out in force to help protect lives and property no matter the weather conditions. You can help your fire department by shoveling out the hydrants nearest your homes and businesses. This simple act helps firefighters find the hydrants faster — and also cuts down on the time that otherwise would be required to clear the hydrant first in the event of a fire. Seconds and minutes count!
Also, be sure to be careful with heating and cooking devices. If your carbon monoxide or smoke detectors alarm, call 911 and evacuate the structure to await the arrival of the fire department. Even in bad weather, we are there for you 365/24/7.
