To The Residents of the Towaco Fire District:
We would appreciate all homeowners and tenants that have a fire hydrant on their property to remove all snow and ice to allow safe access for the firemen in the event of an emergency. In accordance with the town Ordinance # 2011-21, Chapter 330-38, you have 24 hours to remove all snow and ice from the hydrant(s) that is on any highway, street or avenue in the Township of Montville.
Not abiding by this town Ordinance, you may be subject to potential liability in the event of an emergency and the fire hydrant is obstructed due to snow and ice. We would not want to see any of our emergency personnel to become injured while protecting our community.
We ask if you can give us 3 feet clearance around the fire hydrant so we can do our job safely and efficiently. If you have already cleared your fire hydrant, we thank you for your assistance.
Thank you for taking immediate action to this notice.
Towaco Board of Fire Commissioners
