From Shingletown Volunteer Fire Department- Company 20
Wildfires are still a possibility, but you can start preparing for the winter season. Is your wood dry? Green wood only smokes with little heat. Do not keep wood up against your heat source. Is your flue clean and working properly. It is a good idea to have a professional inspect your wood stove/fireplace prior to winter.
Is your carbon monoxide detector working? Do you know you need one in every room.
Be sure and wrap your outside faucets or cover them to avoid a burst pipe when the temperature his the freezing mark.
These are just a few tips to prepare for winter, check our home page for more links and information.
Is your address visible for responding emergency personnel? Valuable time can be lost spent looking for an address. On our contact page you can fill out the contact form for a address sign and it will be forwarded to the appropriate person.
