Winter Storm Jonas
Thursday, February 4, 2016 
-
With winter storm Jonas well behind us and clean up starting to dwindle, we can finally update our community. During the storm members answered many calls, many which were EMS related. Brush 75 answered many of these calls with ease. The 5 ton truck was no match for the accumulated snow piles. Brush 75 was able to open up pathways and assit the squad. As darkness fell, MTVFC received a call to help two surgeons get into the hospital. Brush 75 responded and delivered both doctors without ease. We are very fortunate to have added this truck to our fleet and look forward to many years to come with it.

Prevent Chimney Fires
Chimney Fire

Chimney maintenance and proper cleaning are key steps to keeping your family safe and warm as the temperatures drop. Neglected chimneys accumulate creosote, a combustible byproduct of charred wood, along their walls. Add to that a high internal flue temperature and you've got a potentially dangerous chimney fire on your hands. The best way to avoid a house fire caused by the fireplace or chimney is to hire a professional chimney sweep to inspect for cracks and loose bricks. They will also clean your chimney.
