Take a moment for winter safety

January 29, 2019

Winter is here, and so are the reminders for ways you can help the fire and police departments provide the most efficient and effective emergency services.

  • Make sure your home address is clearly visible from the street. Curb markings and mailbox signs covered by snow and ice can delay the arrival of crews. Address numbers are most valuable if they are visible on your house.
  • Keep your driveways, front walks and steps clear of snow and ice. Snow and ice accumulating in these areas can make it extremely difficult and dangerous when emergency personnel need to move a patient from their residence to a medic unit parked in the street.
  • In the winter, fire hydrants become hidden by snow, making them difficult, and at times, impossible to locate. With your help, firefighters will be able to locate the fire hydrants quickly. Make sure to visually check fire hydrants near your home to ensure they haven’t become buried under snow or ice. If they have, please take  a moment to clear them.
