10 Degree Fire Call

UPDATE: Fire Chief L.D. Sutherland, Jr. suggests… make sure your furnace is in proper running order as it is likely to be tested over the next few days with sub-zero temperatures. Also, make sure your chimney is clear if you are burning wood and make sure all exits from your building are clear of snow and ice. Check smoke detectors. WEBperry hydrant

It was less than 10 degrees out when a fire call went out this morning. Cold weather for firefighters trying to open up fire hydrants and connect hose. Woodstock and South Woodstock responded to the call at Four the Green. There was apparently good reason for the call as windows had to be opened due to smoke from a possible furnace malfunction.

    Please remind people to check their heating appliances that will surely be tested and over worked the next few days. Clean your chimney if your burning wood, make sure all exits from your building are clear from snow and ice and check to be sure smoke detectors are working. Butch
