Pancake Day 2016 – Thanks for a great turnout!

Thanks to all that came out and shared in our favorite community event- Pancake Day! We served over 1400 meals, responded to a call, and had a great time doing it. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.

Seconds Count

By now everyone knows winter is coming. Or here. And winter storm Jonas (not the singing brothers) is near, bringing blizzard watches and packed supermarkets.

We want everyone to be safe, first and foremost. Make sure you have supplies, flashlights, blankets and batteries ready. If you use a generator when the power is out, PLEASE make sure it runs away from the home, and is not inside the structure. Make sure fireplace flues are clear and clean. Listen to official emergency information, and heed the warnings. If the storm does materialize as predicted, please stay inside and only drive if absolutely necessary.

hydranthelpersIf you’re the hearty type, in good shape and out shoveling, we ask one favor- take care of your local hydrants. The more visible and accessible, the faster we can get to the water in an emergency. If we can’t see it, or if we have to shovel around it to access it, that’s precious seconds lost allowing a fire to grow.

Help a hydrant, help your neighborhood!hydranthelpersflyer
