Things to Remember

Driveway Clearances


In an emergency, access is critical. If the parcel delivery truck can't easily navigate the driveway to a house, the Fire Department can't quickly get there either.

​Water Supplies

It's hard to put out a fire without water. Ponds, tanks and fire hydrants can be used to provide the fire department with the water they need to protect a property. Use the "Contact" button above to get in touch with the Fire Marshal for more information.
