Community Visioning Presentation October 28, 2020

 

Boone County Burn Ban in Effect

Boone County Emergency Management is placing all of Boone County, including Madrid, under a burn ban effective at 6:00AM on October 15, 2020.  As a result, there will be NO BURNING ALLOWED in the City of Madrid until the order is lifted.  If you have questions, please contact City Hall.

Bi-Annual Hydrant Flushing

The Madrid Water Department will be flushing fire hydrants beginning October 16, 2020 through October 30, 2020 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and some late evenings, Monday through Friday.

This is part of our bi-annual water distribution system flushing program designed to ensure water quality and to check for proper operation of our fire hydrants.

Customers may experience periodic discoloration in their water during these dates, however, do not be alarmed.  The water (although unsightly) is safe to drink.  If you encounter brown or discolored water, please run cold water through a faucet on the lowest level of your home for a few minutes.

We do ask that residents refrain from washing clothes (especially whites) during the specified dates and times, due to the potential of staining.  We would also request that citizens not park vehicles near, in front of, or across from fire hydrants during these dates.

If you have low water pressure or water discoloration for more than 24 hours or if you have any questions, please contact City Hall.

Fire Prevention Week

2020’s Fire Prevention Week is held from October 4th through October 10th and the topic this year is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen”.  Normally, Madrid Fire and Rescue would visit the elementary schools and preschools, but with the current COVID-19 situation we are unable to do so this year.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Almost half (44%) of reported home fires started in the kitchen, and two-thirds (66%) of home cooking fires start with the ignition of food or other cooking materials.”

We are asking that families in our community to talk to your children about the dangers of cooking in the kitchen. Attached is a link for families to visit with your kids.

Wishing everyone in the community a Safe Fire Prevention Week! From Fire Chief Randy Pecenka and the rest of the Madrid Fire and Rescue crew!
