Fourth of July info MH Fire Dept.
Big thanks to Jay Hart and the team over at Station 79 for sending us the 4th of July safety packet. Lots of really great information! Please, take a moment and read through it. Have a safe and sane 4th of July!
Comment from Jay Hart on the community Facebook page (6/30/16):
“Last year the weather was exceptionally hot and dry, and the entire field did not have a hint of green grass anywhere. Using the fire truck, we did spray water on a significant amount of the parks perimeter in between the elementary school and the park. Dead yellow grass was approximately 1-2 inches high, and on several occasions, little flares ups from sparks did occur. However, community members were very quick to stomp them out. Last night I checked the park, and it’s a completely different story. This year the grass is green. Temperatures leading up to the fourth are expected to be in the low 70’s with a mild dose of humidity, so as long as everyone behaves responsibly, the crowd should expect to see a good show. Thanks to web master Jason Ament for posting the Safety Packet Eastside Fire & Rescue created to make sure everyone goes home safe.”
