Remember to keep all your vents clear and never operate a portable generator in your home or garage.
Keep all your pathways clear.
Keep flashlights near by and be ready for changing weather.
We are so so grateful for them and all of their efforts (even if we were emotional messes and came across as mental cases).
We will always be grateful for you!
We have some more less than desirable weather coming later in the week. Here are some reminders about portable generator use!
Training together with Merrimack PD. One team
Firefighter/Paramedic Brendan McAdam's has completed his 1 year probationary period. Members of A shift looked on as Brendan's officers and mentor presented Brendan with his new helmet front and badge with ID number. Congratulations on your achievement and welcome to the next step in your career
Take advantage of the warmer weather and clear away the second means of egress at your homes and businesses. This is also the time to make sure that the roof is clear to prevent ice dams and clear away snow. With significant rain fall predicted for the end of the week the weight of the snow will increase substantially!
DO NOT ALLOW A LITTLE HEAT TO BURN YOU!
With the extreme cold we have experienced many people will use space heaters as supplemental heat to stay warm. We urge you to use these devices safely. Ensure your unit is UL listed and follow the manufacture directions.
Stay tuned to the expected weather later this week. Consider family needs beyond the milk and bread. Consider your prescription needs, hygiene and antiseptic supplies and spare batteries for power outages and having potable water available for extended periods.
While your clearing away the snow accumulation from the last few days make sure that you have cleared our the air intake areas for appliances and generators. Obstructed vents can disturb the efficiency of your appliance and may allow carbon monoxide and other toxic gases to accumulate.
