Santa's Special Visit
Dec 22, 2018
Dec 22, 2018 - This afternoon The Marydel Fire Company welcomed Santa in to town. Santa had a surprise visit to a very special person. Santa asked Chief Buffy Madden to give him a ride to Gerimiah's house. You see, Santa asked us to do this for him because this was Geremiah's Christmas wish again this year. He asked Santa to visit him this Christmas on a firetruck! The reindeer were too busy resting up for the long ride on Tuesday. Chief Buffy Madden arrived at Gerimiah's house and established Operation Santa. On arrival Gerimiah was excited when Santa exited the fire truck. Santa greeted Gerimiah, Rily, and Anaiyah and offered to take them for a ride. Gerimiah was eager to go. He loved the ride with Santa. He also loved the sirens. On behalf of the Marydel Volunteer Fire Company and the Pennington family we would like to wish Gerimiah, Rily, Anaiyah and family A Very Merry Christmas!

Be Prepared, Cold Weather is Here!
Jan 3, 2018
Jan 3, 2018 - ~~With an arctic blast settling in the Delmarva region as expected, organizations are reminding residents to stay safe in the cold weather. When the temperatures drop, certain pipes – including outdoor pipes or pipes in unheated interior areas or areas with little insulation – are all at risk of freezing, the American Red Cross warns. ~~To protect and prevent your pipes from freezing before the cold weather hits, follow these tips from the Red Cross: --Drain water from swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines. Do not put antifreeze in these lines, as it can be harmful to the environment and dangerous to humans, pets, wildlife and landscaping. --Remove, drain and store hoses used outdoors. Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs. Open the outside hose bibs to allow water to drain, and keep the outside valve open so that any water in the pipe can expand without causing it to burst. --Add insulation to attics and crawl spaces. --Check other areas in your home where water supply lines may be located in unheated areas, such as the garage and under kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Hot and cold water pipes in these areas should be insulated. --Consider installing products such as a “pipe sleeve,” “heat tape” or “heat cable” on exposed water pipes. Newspaper can also provide some insulation to exposed pipes. --Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines there. --Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate. --When the weather is very cold, allow cold water to drip from a faucet served by exposed pipes. If your pipes do freeze in the colder weather, try these tips: --Keep the faucet open. As the frozen area begins to melt, water will begin to flow again. Running water through the pipe will help to melt ice. --Apply heat to the frozen section of the pipe by using an electric heating pad, a hair dryer, a portable space heater or with towels soaked in hot water. Do not use a blowtorch, kerosene, propane heater, charcoal stove or other open flame device to heat the pipe. --Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. If the frozen area is unknown or not accessible, call a licensed plumber. --If one pipe freezes, check other faucets in the home to see if other pipes have frozen as well.
