With the potential for a significant snowfall and dropping temperatures in the next few days we would like to pass on a few tips. Adopt a hydrant. Valuable minutes and seconds can be saved by our men and women who respond to emergencies during and after these storms if we can find and get to a fire hydrant. Check up on your elderly neighbors and make sure they have heat, food, medications, and shovel their sidewalks in case they experience a medical emergency. Be aware of low furnace and dryer vents make sure they are not blocked by the snow and they are able to work properly.
