It’s Adopt A Hydrant Time Again

CERT_logoA message from the Orange CERT:

During the winter months, we ask town residents to “adopt” a hydrant and keep it clear of snow in case our fire fighters need to get to them.

Most residents already do this and we would love to get as many hydrants “adopted” this year.

If you’re already committed to clearing a hydrant or if you’re interested in doing it, please give us your information.  This will help out your town and fire fighters tremendously.

For any further information contact Lisa Hartshorn at lahart2269@gmail.com.

Thank you from your Orange CERT team.

Here is a VIDEO of three firefighters clearing a hydrant on Route 34 — the 3 minutes or more that it takes to shovel around a hydrant could make a world of difference should there be a fire at your home, or a neighbor’s home.

IMG_4782Members of the Orange Volunteer Fire Department (and the Orange Community Emergency Response Team — CERT) took part in a storm preparation day at Home Depot on Saturday.

Both groups spent about 3 hours talking to the public: Firefighters showed off the Rescue 1 truck and explained  its functions, while CERT provided information and brochures.

The UI and other groups also set up tables and shared information.

Meanwhile over at the Christmas Tree Shop, firefighters greeted shoppers and sold raffle tickets for great prizes that will be on display at this week’s Volunteer Firemen’s Carnival.

For just $5 you can have a chance at winning one of the prizes and you will be helping the volunteer fire department raise money to purchase the training and equipment they need to serve the community.
