Citywide hydrant testing continues through end of May

Last week, the Maitland Fire Rescue Department began its annual citywide hydrant testing. The project is expected to be completed by the end of May.

If you experience “brown” water during this time, run your faucet for approximately 5 minutes until the water runs clear.

Signs will be placed in the area we are working in each week.

For additional information or questions, log on to or call Fire Administration at 407-539-6226.

A safety reminder from MFRD

With daylight saving time beginning on Sunday, March 13, the Maitland Fire Rescue Department reminds residents to replace the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Changing smoke alarm and CO detector batteries at least once a year, testing each alarm, and reminding others to do the same is the simplest, most effective way to help ensure the safety of your family, friends, and neighbors.
