**Update**

Broken water pipes calls have spiked within the last few hours creating additional demands for emergency crews. Based on road conditions and other priority emergency calls, responses to broken water pipes will be delayed.

If you are able to safely shut off your own (or your neighbors’) residential water line because of a leak or full rupture, please do. You won’t hurt our feelings.

If you are a neighbor that has the tools, skill set or experience shutting off residential service lines, maybe reach out to your neighbors and let them know that. You’ll help reduce property damage and greatly reduce system demand for us so we’re available for other emergency calls. Basically, you’ll become a HERO with one turn of a valve.

**Update** Emergency services are beyond stretched thin. We need your help as this can be a life and death situation. We ask that you stay inside and off the roads. Staying off the roads keeps both of us safe while staying inside keeps you off the slick ice and out of the hospital. The hard reality is we will be delayed in getting to you with conditions the way they are and it is forecasted to get worse. The next 24-48 hours will be extremely dangerous if we don't respect the conditions. - Robert B. Abbott, Fire Chief ... See MoreSee Less

** Warning ** Road conditions are not improving and weather forecasts indicate it will get worse. Emergency crews are having difficulty safely accessing incidents. LTFR has already had units stuck and off the road in addition to one of our partner agencies rolled their fire engine responding to emergencies. While all firefighters in that rollover have been released from the hospital, it is a reminder of what is at stake. Please stay home! - Robert B. Abbott, Fire Chief ... See MoreSee Less

With historic temperatures and conditions in our future, LTFR has made a number of changes to our operations to keep you and your firefighters safe. We ask for a little assistance in helping us serve the community:

- If you can avoid having to drive, please do. If you MUST travel on the roads, plan your trip to reduce the chances of encountering icy conditions. Check road conditions, closures, and public warnings before departing.

- Freezing pipes are usually preventable: cover and drip facets. If you have cold spots in your house, keeping some cabinets open may help reduce plumbing issues. Broken water pipes can lead to fires and other issues that require a call to 911 in some cases.

- Be careful around ice-covered trees. While very picturesque, walking under and around trees with additional weight added to the branches can be deadly if they were to come down on someone.

- If you find a tree or branch blocking a roadway in a manner that would reduce or prevent police/fire/EMS/Utilities from responding to an emergency, call 311 to report it if it is not something that can be moved safely to the side of the street.

- DO NOT run gas-powered generators, heaters, or outdoor propane grills indoors. The practice is both a major fire AND a health hazard.

- If using a space heater, follow the manufacturer's guidelines for its safe use. Keep combustible items away from all heating sources.
