Fire Season is here
« on: June 02, 2018, 06:00:58 AM »
Hey everyone,

A friendly reminder that fire season is upon us. (This is not an issue, but just a reminder to everyone) Please do not throw cigarette butts in grassy or wooded areas, when using any kind of tool that puts off sparks or hot debri please have a fire watch man, and always keep an eye out for fires along the line. Here in Maine there have been many fires from cigarettes being thrown out vehicle windows and lightning strikes.

In Colorado the Durango & Silverton is currently cancelling trains due to a massive forest fire north of Durango.

We should check all our fire hand pumps, and fire car and get it ready to go should we need it. We have been cery vigilant with our services to the town, hopefully we can keep up the good work. Remember as Smokey Bear would say, you can help prevent forest fires.
