Customized, reflective 911 address signs are now available at the Underhill fire station for a modest cost.  Large, reflective numbers really help the UJFD find your house in the event of an emergency.  Stop by or call the fire station if you are interested.  Click here to download an order form.

If you have a vehicle- accessible pond, you may want to consider installing a dry hydrant into it.  These aid our rural water supply efforts, and the UJFD will reimburse you the cost of the strainer and coupling hardware.  Contact Duty Officer, Harry Schoppmann for more details.

Great News!
 
The UJFD was re-evaluated by Insurance Services Organization ISO and we have attained a new PPC rating of 4/6/10, 4 in areas with hydrants, 6 for areas with no hydrants but within 5 road miles of a fire station and 10 for areas outside of 5 miles from a fire station.  This is a huge accomplishment and, effective March 1, 2014, it may significantly LOWER the home owner's insurance premiums of many U-J residents.  Please see these documents for more details regarding this system and its impact on insurance rates.

Fire Safety Message:

Be Fire Safe in Your Home.

  • When cleaning out wood ashes from fireplaces or stoves, place these ashes in a metal container with a lid and store them well away from the house. Live embers in ashes can stay active for up to three days and if put into cardboard box or paper bags they could start a fire and spread to other combustible materials.
  • Never use a kitchen range or an oven as a supplemental heating source. If you use an electric heater, be sure not to overload the circuit, if an extension cord is used make sure it has the necessary rating to carry an amp load. 
  • Never try to thaw frozen water pipes them with a blow torch or other open flame, use hot water or a laboratory tested device such as a hand held dryer for thawing.
  • Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide
    detectors have new batteries and test them monthly. Have a family plan in place for escaping your house in case of fire. If windows are used as emergency exits in your home and practice using them in the event fire should strike and make sure these windows open easily. 
  • If there is a fire hydrant near your home you can assist the fire department by keeping the hydrant clear of snow so in the event it is needed, it can be located. Also, never park a vehicle in front of a fire hydrant.
