With winter weather in full swing, the Shelby Volunteer Fire Company is asking for your help. Town of Shelby residents are encouraged to “adopt” the fire hydrant closest to their home or business and keep it free of snow during the winter.
At a fire, the Fire Department must quickly locate and gain a water supply source from the closest fire hydrant. A fire engine carries enough water on board for approximately 3 ½ minutes of firefighting.
If a fire hydrant is buried by snow, it is often difficult to find and valuable time must be spent digging it out. It may take from 4 to 6 minutes to dig out a fire hydrant buried by snow. The delay in gaining a water supply from a fire hydrant may disrupt the timely manner in which firefighters are able to fight the fire and may allow a fire to grow.
You can help the Shelby Volunteer Fire Company by “adopting” the fire hydrant closest to your home or business. Keep the snow clear from around the fire hydrant and shovel a path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant.
Also, please consider helping a neighbor with a medical condition or who is elderly, by shoveling out a hydrant in front of their home. This act of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood.
These actions will allow the Fire Department to quickly locate a fire hydrant and obtain a water supply for firefighting activities, should the need arise.
The Shelby Volunteer Fire Company is dedicated to serving our community and its residents in their time of need and sincerely appreciates any effort you make to “help us, help you.”

Now that you have "sprung" your clocks forward, don't forget to "start fresh" with your Smoke Detectors and CO (Carbon Monoxide) Detectors.Even your "hard-wired" smoke detectors that are plugged into your home's electrical supply typically have a 9v backup battery to keep the detectors operating in case of a power outage. Often they will “chirp” when the batteries are dying – that means to change the batteries, don’t disconnect o...
