It is a New Year and we are looking forward to what’s in store over at the Fire Department.
We have our four new firefighters that will be starting on shift this month. If you see us out training, make sure to stop in and say hello to Christian Casey, Avery Rooks, Cody Jueden, and Mitchell Wilson. We are looking forward to them joining our team and serving the community.
As winter is here and the weather has finally turned, please make sure to take the extra time to drive safely. We have been on a number of vehicle accidents that have been exacerbated by the cold temperatures and precipitation. Leaving with plenty of time, taking the time to clear the windows on your vehicle, and keeping a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you can all help to prevent accidents and keep yourself and those around you safe. Making sure to stay at a safe speed and allow extra stopping time can make the difference between stopping for a pedestrian or rounding a corner. It’s also a great time to make sure you have some simple supplies in the event your vehicle becomes disabled – a blanket, some snacks, simple first aid gear, warning triangles or lights, and extra warm clothing are always a good idea and can make being stranded more comfortable and less of an emergency. That’s all from the Fire Department for this month and until February, stay safe!
