I'm extremely thankful to the firemen, who quite often, have to come to our building when the fire alarm goes off, and they arrive very quickly.

I baked a special batch of cookies just for them. I ha...d left them behind in my apartment when leaving the other day, but behold, as I returned home the fire alarm went off, so I was able to give them their cookies. I hope you all enjoyed them See More

Thanks to the IFD for the quick response this morning to the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce. Luckily, it seems that it was only a dirty smoke detector going off, but it's great to know that you' always there for us. See More

DEC: Residential Burn Ban in New York State Through May 14

Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) reminds residents that with spring approaching and con...ditions for wildfires heightened, residential brush burning is prohibited March 16 through May 14 across New York State.

"While many people associate wildfires with the western United States, the start of spring weather and the potential for dry conditions increases the risk for wildfires in New York," DEC Commissioner Seggos said. "New York prohibits residential burning during the high-risk fire season to reduce wildfires and protect people, property, and natural resources. The ban has been extremely effective in reducing the number of wildfires, and we're encouraging New Yorkers to put safety first."

Even though much of the state is currently blanketed in snow, warming temperatures can quickly cause wildfire conditions to arise.

When temperatures are warmer and the past fall's debris and leaves dry out, wildfires can start and spread easily and be further fueled by winds and a lack of green vegetation.

Campfires using charcoal or untreated wood are allowed, but people should never leave such fires unattended and must extinguish them. Burning garbage or leaves is prohibited year-round.

Violators of the state's open burning regulation are subject to both criminal and civil enforcement actions, with a minimum fine of $500 for a first offense
