Clear a path for the fire deparment 02.16.2011

Posted in 2011 February

When Morenci Fire Department member Jeff Ort was driving through the country recently, several times he thought about the difficulty that unplowed or narrowly plowed drives would pose for fire fighters.

In some cases the residents are away for the winter months with unplowed drives. At other locations, he noticed drives that were very narrow, particularly at the entrance off the road—not wide enough for a large firetruck to turn into.

Snow if rapidly melting, but there’s still time for additional storms to move through and Ort suggests that people keep emergency response in mind.

“It would make it a lot better for us,” he said.
