After an extremely long and precipitation rich winter, much of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin are covered in large accumulations of snow. As temperatures rise above freezing in the upcoming weeks they will cause rapid snow melt and increase danger of flooding. Please see attached information about some precautions that can be taken in your home to prevent flooding or minimize the damage.
Seconds count when fighting a fire. During the winter months it becomes very important to keep hydrants free from obstruction of snow. The Village of Algonquin developed the Adopt-a-Hydrant Program to help keep fire hydrants free of snow and the community safe. To learn more about the program, to adopt a fire hydrant or to report damages, please visit the Village of Algonquin website.
