Our Department has once again completed hydrant painting across the City. Priority was given to new or replaced fire hydrants and then those hydrants that have been identified as needing repainting. Our hydrant painter returned from last year and she really enjoys the work and the interaction with residents when out in the community.
During this year's Home Day weekend, the Lyndhurst Firefighters Local 1676 will be staffing the Beer Tent in the park during the entirety of the festival. Partial proceeds support various charities including Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (http://www.acbcohio.org/) and Olivia's Dream (https://www.oliviasdream.org/). There will also be a brief September 11 Remembrance Ceremony in front of the Fire Station at 09:59 which was the time the first building collapsed.
Lastly, a friendly reminder, as we will be coming into the Fall season that all open burning requires a permit and approval from the Fire Department. Yard waste, including fall. Outdoor recreational fires must be in an approved fire pit or container with smoke not creating a nuisance.
After five years of active planning, the former Lyndhurst Fire Department bays were leveled to make way for a new fire station and the former office and dormitory spaces were renovated for other uses. The project was, in spite of the pandemic, completed on budget and on time. We are proud of the result which you can tour, virtually, by clicking this link or scanning the QR Code provided.
