Monthly calls

The fire department will be flushing hydrants in the township over the next several months as part of our preparedness efforts. This is an important preventive measure that is necessary to maintain the integrity of our water system. As a result of the line flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience a temporary discoloration of their water. The discoloration consists of primarily harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in your water after crews have been flushing in your area, clear the pipes in your home by running all faucets several minutes. 

This would be a good reminder to check your water heater recommendations for maintaining it by draining it and flushing it. This will keep your water heater operating efficiently.

Barn Fire

Friday, February 12, 2016 0100 At 0100 on Saturday February 12th Valley City Fire Department responded to a fully involved barn fire at 7844 W Law Rd. The fire was called in by a neighbor, when the first truck arrived on scene the entire barn and its contents were on fire and was beginning to spread to two other structures. Firefighters immediately began defensive operations and were able to save the two other barns. Valley City firefighters were assisted by Brunswick Hills FD, Erhart FD, Grafton FD, Brunswick FD, and LST. Due to the extreme cold (8 degrees) firefighters had to be constantly rotated. Firefighters were on scene approximately 7 hours. There were no injuries to people or animals, however the barn and its contents were a total loss. The loss is estimated at $9.5 million due to the multiple pieces of machinery in the barn. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the State Fire Marshall, due to the high dollar loss.
Valley City would like to thank all departments who assisted at the fire.
