Captain Richard Knight retires after 35 years of dedicated service to the Farmington Fire Rescue Department. Captain Knight joined the department on October 9th, 1979. Captain Knight has been a very valuble member of the department and he will leave with some pretty big boots to fill. Congratulations Captain Knight!!!
When the weather changes be prepared for slippery footing and icy roads. Take time to sand your driveway/walkways for yourself and those who might visit. Have you checked your roof for ice dams, chimney connections (inside and out of doors) and out buildings for snow/ice build ups? Check any outside oil tanks just in case there has been ice/snow damage. Please stay informed.
Heads Up. Cold weather, winds and more freezing are here or on the way. Suggestions to help you manage these conditions; drink plenty of fluids (water) hot and cold, dress in layers, eat regularly, use generators outside of buildings, stay informed, check on friends and neighbors and take care of your pets. Be careful with wood fire equipment and be sure to remove the ashes to out side of buildings and combustibles. Thanks for sharing any information.
