BURN BAN ON - NO OUTDOOR BURNING

The DNR Lands Commissioner issued a resoution on June 22nd, establish statewide burn ban.

Driveways

Is your driveway wide enough and stable enough for fire apparatus to travel on?  

Imagine that you're at home late one evening and awake to smoke alarms sounding.  You realize that your home is charged with smoke and something is burning.  What happens if the Fire Department cannot reach your home?  The Fire Department responds in large fire engines and water tender trucks to bring water to the scene.  Pre-connected hoses are 200 feet  in length.  If the engine operator is unsure, they will not continue down the drive.  We experience emergencies on a monthly basis where the ambulance or fire engine cannot travel all the way to a residence due to a narrow, overgrown, or unstable roadway.  The department sustained damage to fire apparatus on two emergencies last year, attempting to reach a home with a poor driveway in.

 

Be sure to check your driveway each spring for overgrown limbs, washed out areas, and repair and trim as necessary.  If you are unsure about the width, you can contact the department to assess it.

Another note:  if we must cross a bridge to get to your residence, fire department apparatus will not cross it unless it has been inspected by an engineer with maximum load capacity clearly posted on both ends or it is a county maintained bridge.
