Snow Removal From All Exits Around Businesses and Public Places.
Tuesday, February 18, 2014 
-
With all the snow and shoveling that has been done, did you remember to clear the snow from ALL the exit doors around your building?

 
 If there is an exit sign above a door the snow and pathway outside also needs to be clear even if they are not commonly used. With all the snow that we have gotten, some emergency exits are unable to open.
 
 It is easy to forget to shovel out a door that is not commonly used but not doing so is a dangerous. If you remembered to clear the snow from driveways, sidewalks and parking spots for your patrons, don’t forget to clear the outside of all the doors marked on the inside with an exit sign.
 
Keeping the exit cleared inside and out may save you, your employees, your patrons or even a firefighter looking for a way out of a fire.

The Midway Volunteer Fire Company responded to a dwelling fire at 6370 Green Hill Road in Solebury Township. The fire was contained to the porch with extension into the kitchen and enclosed foyer of the farmhouse. Due to initial reports of heavy fire and freezing weather conditions, the assignment was upgraded to a full box along with a tanker task force. Crews make a quick knock down and containment of the fire, limiting damage to the porch, foyer and kitchen area. Additional personnel and equipment from the Doylestown, Lingohocken, New Hope, Plumsteadville, Point Pleasant, and Stockton fire companies assisted Midway. Additional support was provided by Central Bucks Ambulance.

We need your help so we can help you or your neighbors!

While shoveling your driveways and sidewalks, please remember to clear snow away from any fire hydrants in front of your homes or businesses. Also, please make sure your street address is visible wherever it is posted. Snow may cover your mailbox or your address on your home or business. Taking a few extra minutes to help us with this will enable us to find the correct location of an emergency call if needed. These few extra minutes may just save someones life.
