SNOW AFFECTS RESPONSE TIMES

SNOW AFFECTS RESPONSE TIMES

Fire officials in the Chippewa Valley are saying that recent snows could affect response time. 

Eau Claire County is working to clear high snow banks to make streets passable for fire trucks.  Crews also can’t use the roof of a house to ventilate in a fire because they’re unsure of its condition under heavy snow.  Fire hydrants must also be cleared so crews can safely access water.
