511 is now activated.

Tree Trimming Reminders

Tis the season to be careful when decorating your house for the holiday. Captain Andrew Sanojca with the Musquash Fire Department tells CHSJ News, before any lights or decorations that plug in are set up....give them a good once over. Sanojca adds it's a good idea to unplug any decorations as well if your going to be away from the house for an extended period of time. Also, if you have a real tree, try to water at least twice a day as they dry up very quickly.
