Medina and Montville Townships Bridge Program: Are you a property owner in Medina Township or Montville Township who has a bridge or culvert underneath your driveway? The Medina Fire Department has started a new safety initiative to inspect private bridges and culverts to ensure they will handle the weight of a fire truck should we ever need to respond to your property in the event of an emergency. If they can, we will place a small sign which will indicate to firefighters it is safe to drive across. Without prior inspection and approval, responding fire trucks will stage on the road to ensure the bridge or culvert doesn't collapse as the truck crosses, potentially leading to damage to the truck and a slower response. Knowing the bridge or culvert is safe in advance will provide a faster and safer response to the property owner’s emergency. This is a free service, contact Operations Captain Steve Ingersol at 330-725-1772 to schedule an inspection.
2021 Fire Hydrant Flushing Schedule: Every Summer, the City Water Department flushes the fire hydrants to ensure they are properly functioning and maintained. The Water Department will put up signs ahead of time to indicate when they will be coming to your area, but the complete schedule can be viewed by clicking the following link. Please note this schedule is subject to change based on weather and personnel availability.
