Reminder: There Is a Flash Flood Watch In Effect

While we are in between storms, I just wanted to remind everyone that there is also a Flash Flood Watch in effect until this evening.  With all of the talk about lightning and wind – and that is important – I want to make sure all of you are aware of ALL the potential issues that could occur today.

Below, please find links to two recent blog posts that you will find useful.  Unfortunately, we here at MCFRS had several calls for water rescues on roadways earlier in the week.  PLEASE remember to “Turn Around and Do Not Drown!”  Too many seem to be ignoring this very simple preventive step.  You are putting not only yourself at risk but also the lives of our Firefighters who must now try and rescue you!

Make sure you are able to keep informed today of the potentially evolving weather forecast!  Be aware and prepared! 

As always: Stay Safe!
