With the anticipated high winds the snow drifts can grow quickly. Make sure to keep your vents clear. Please check on your neighbors, particularly the elderly as they may not be able to get to their vents as easily.With the anticipated snow accumulation over this weekend, National Fuel reminds all homeowners that snow and ice pose a variety of safety and performance issues to their heating systems.

Natural gas furnaces and fireplaces each have a vent pipe or flue that sends out exhaust and gaseous by-products to the outdoors. Depending on the type of furnace, venting takes place through a pipe on the outside of the house or through the chimney. These furnace exhaust vents can easily become clogged with debris, ice or snow. When snow piles up and blocks furnace vents, your furnace could shut off as a safety measure. Other times, it can cause furnaces to operate inefficiently or stop running altogether and break down. Blocked vents can lead to a build-up of carbon monoxide gas. Homeowners should make sure that their furnace vents are clear of snow, ice, debris or other obstructions. The same applies to your dryer vent; if it is blocked, your dryer may not operate as efficiently as it should.

Keep the area around and above the outdoor gas meter free of snow and ice. Remember to use caution when shoveling, plowing or snow blowing around the meter. Use a broom to remove snow from the meter itself. To avoid accidental damage by a third party, inform anyone who works near your meter (such as a snow removal service) of its location.

If you are experiencing an emergency due to the extreme cold weather, please call our emergency number at 1-800-444-3130. This line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As always, if you smell gas, leave fast! If a rotten-egg natural gas odor is present, leave the premises immediately without turning on or off any electrical appliances and call National Fuel's emergency line (1-800-444-3130) from a different location. If you smell an odor of gas outdoors, please call National Fuel’s emergency number and provide the address nearest to the site of the odor.

Good job

During the month of December 2018 the member of the Hamburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to 102 incidents. 80 EMS calls, 7 fire alarms, 4 elevator rescues, 2 oven fires (both were thankfully contained to the oven), our STAR team was called to Woodlawn Beach twice and a few other miscellaneous fire calls.

For our 2018 year-end report. We had 1333 total incidents. This was the most of all agencies dispatched by Hamburg Fire Control. 993 of those calls were EMS calls. Hamburg 8 transported 378 of those. 246 were non transported calls (sign off, stand by, accidental medical alarm, confirmation). We are proud to report that our department responded to every incident we were dispatched to. Thank you to all of our members, our families, the community and our mutual aid companies for another incredible year.

Santa has recruited the Village of Hamburg Police to help him deliver presents this year. Because Santa has eaten too many cookies, it's difficult for him to get onto roofs. Officer Travis and Officer Pietsch help hoist Santa up while Lieutenant Caber "holds" Santa's cookies.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Village of Hamburg Police Department.
