Frequently Asked Questions
You or your insurance company can request a fire report in person or by mail, including a self addressed stamped envelope. You will need to provide the date, approximate time and location of the incident.
There is a $5.00 charge for copies of any reports.
Our personnel are out "flushing" the fire hydrants throughout the city during the warm months. While this may appear to be wasteful, it serves two purposes:
- The fire department uses these flushes as a test for the hydrants that, thankfully, are seldom used. It also provides us with an opportunity to check for any damage that may have occurred and to keep the hydrants in the best working condition possible.
- The public works department uses the flushing as a means to keep sediment from building up in the water mains. The flushing also removes any contaminants that may have entered the mains due to breaks or other problems.
