|Winter Tree Trimming|
|This week, Village crews received proper tree pruning and trimming training in preparation for their winter tree trimming operations. The refresher course was taught by a certified arborist from Milwaukee Technical College.

|Carbon Monoxide Detector Law|
|Wisconsin's new carbon monoxide detector law takes effect February 1, 2011. Carbon monoxide detectors will be required in all one and two family dwellings. A full overview of the law and its requirements is available on the Village's website. If you have any questions regarding the new carbon monoxide detector law, or any other fire safety questions, please contact the North Shore Fire Department's Public Education Office at (414) 228-0292 or email Jill Glanz. |
|Adopt A Hydrant Program|
|As snow continues to fall, the North Shore Fire Department would like remind residents about the need to clear snow from around fire hydrants near their home. Please make it a point to uncover your fire hydrant after each and every snowfall. Clear a path approximately 3 feet around the hydrant and shovel a path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant. These actions will allow the Fire Department to quickly locate the fire hydrant in the event of an emergency. |
