News from Munro Township

Emergency Vehicle Clearance for Driveways

Our Fire Chief, Dan Socha has gone around Munro Township and inspected driveways for emergency vehicle use, such as fire trucks and ambulances. The new vehicles are getting bigger and need more clearances to get to resident's homes. Please make sure an ambulance or fire truck can get to your door by clearing driveways of trees and brush 14 feet high by 14' wide.
