Adopt - A - Hydrant
Snowstorms can cause plenty of traffic headaches, but Mendham's firefighters want people to be aware of a secondary problem that may develop.
When you're working with a shovel or a plow, please pay attention to where you're putting your mounds of snow. To many times these piles can end up on top of a fire hydrant making it difficult or near impossible for firefighters to find.
We're asking people to "Adopt-A-Hydrant" on their street and keep it clear of snow drifts. We can loose precious amounts of time looking for a fire hydrant, or having to shovel one out, so we can connect to it. Try to prevent hydrants near your home or business from being buried. Please dig them out if they are buried.
One more reminder: Make sure your house numbers haven't been covered by snow. Having your address readily visible helps fire, police or ambulance crews find your home more quickly in an emergency.
CHANGE YOUR CLOCK - CHANGE YOUR SMOKE ALARM & CO ALARM BATTERIES OR
IF YOUR SMOKE ALARMS ARE 10 YEARS OR OLDER REPLACE THEM WITH 10 YEAR
SEALED BATTERY UNITS. CO ALARMS HAVE A 5 TO 7 YEAR LIFE EXPECTANCY.
