Wrightstown Fire Department

Its “Fall” time so change batteries in your smoke and CO detectors. Make sure your vents to the outside are clear of fall debris, leaves and foliage before snow covers and blocks them. Also as the snow flies please adopt a hydrant and remove the snow from a hydrant near your home to ensure that firefighters can access them easily in case of emergency. Another to item that has been a cause for many holiday tragedies is portable heaters. If there is need to use these devices be sure to be responsible and take all safety precautions including not over loading electrical outlets, and if using gas heaters making sure that they are properly ventilated. Thanks for all who came to visit us on Halloween and supported our department with our Deer Hunt Booyah blow out. It is great to be supported by a community as great as the Village of Wrightstown. Have a safe hunt and holiday season.
