Winter Fire Alert

Dear Loop:

Would you please remind our neighbors to please dig out the fire hydrants that may be nearby their house or on their property. The longer it takes to get water on a fire the longer it will burn. Please.

Space heaters are a major cause of fires in Westchester. If you use one please make sure that it is plugged into an outlet that can handle the load. Speaking of loads, if you have a generator please make sure you have a sign near your electrical panel and outside your home that reminds firefighters and your family to turn off the generator if there is a fire in house. The fire department will usually ask Con Ed to cut power but if your generator kicks on automatically someone may get hurt. Thanks neighbor!

Regards,

Ed Merians

Chairman of the Board
