Welcome to Marysville Fire District
Slipping into darkness...
As leaves show their age and trees go bare, as grasses recede into dormancy and diminish their need for care, our habits do change just as we change the clothes we wear, for a coolness approaches and ol' man winter demands his tare.
Our transitional season of Fall teases us with warm sunny days at its start, but tows close behind the harshness of Winter before surrendering its' term.
As the temperatures drop and the days grow short, we tend to spend more time indoors. This is a good time to start preparing for the impacts associated with the change in our season. Check your smoke detectors and verify working Carbon Monoxide detectors are present in your home. Chimneys should be cleaned and inspected for integrity. Furnace filters might need changing, heaters a good cleaning, and proper ventilation ensured. Consider revisiting your fire escape plan as part of a general "what to do in an emergency" review with your family; what will you do during a regional event when your cell phone won't work, your power goes out, traffic thwarts efforts to return home, etc. Even a simple and common wind storm can devastate the all too relied upon infrastructure we all take for granted. An hours' forethought and discussion can help alleviate worried minds.
Outdoor fires are generally permitted under specific guidelines; if you plan on burning outdoors, please be aware of the regulations for such, and the potential impacts on your neighbors as
Check the tires on your car and change your windshield wipers, as rains and wet roads will test both. Provide a greater following distance while driving so you won't need to test your anti-lock braking systems. Use your headlights during the day especially if your car is not equipped with daytime running lights; the shadows and grays that befall this season easily mask from view all but the brightest painted vehicles.
Remember; with just a few considerations for safety and preparedness, the change in our seasons can bring us lots of smiles and many good memories.

Time to retire your old US Flag?
The American Legion Post 178 in Marysville would be proud to properly dispose of your old and tattered United States of America flag. Your flag can be dropped off into a converted US Mail Box in their front entry area, 24 hours a day. The flag mail box is located at 119 Cedar St. (south of 2nd and Cedar, behind the Marysville Mall.) They would appeciate a note indicating the history of the flag if you desire, but its not required.
