Useful info!

With spring finally starting to ma ke an appearance we want to remi nd everyone including landscapers, property owners a nd property caretakers about the mulch regulati on in Massachusetts.

The regulation prohibits new applicati on of mulch within 18” around combustib le exteriors of buildings, such as wo od or vinyl, but not brick or concre te. This code is specific to commerci al property and residential units of 6 or mo re but homeowners are urged to foll ow these safety precautions.

Use these ti ps from the Massachusetts Department of Fi re Services:

β€’ Provide a minimum of an 18-in ch clearance between landscape mulch beds a nd combustible building materials, such as wo od, vinyl siding and decks.
β€’ Use non-combustib le mulch such as rock or p ea stone around gas meters and combustib le portions of the structure.
β€’ Provide prop er receptacles for smoking materials at a ll entrances to public buildings and in designat ed smoking areas. Place them at lea st 18" away from the building, do n ot mulch
in these areas and remember to regular ly empty smoking receptacles.
β€’ Grounds and maintenan ce crews should be aware when conditio ns are favorable for mulch fires a nd increase surveillance of mulch beds.
β€’ Ke ep mulch beds moist when possible.

Anyone needi ng more information should contact the Fi re Prevention Officer at 508-758-4150.

Monday Morning Briefing on Jose:

Jose is foreca st to pass southeast of Nantucket, bringi ng a variety of significant hazards Tuesd ay through Thursday, especially to the Sou th Coast of Rhode Island and Massachuset ts which includes Cape Cod, Martha's Vineya rd, Nantucket, and Block Island.

Tropical Storm For ce winds may impact southern Rhode Isla nd and southeast Massachusetts, including Cape C od and the Islands. These winds m ay be strong enough to result in so me tree damage and scattered power outag es. It's a good idea to secu re any outdoor items and have flashligh ts and batteries available.

Of greater concern is t he potential for severe beach erosion alo ng ocean coastlines of Rhode Island a nd southeast Massachusetts. Some protective dunes m ay be overtopped or severely eroded by th is storm.

On the coastal waters south a nd southeast of New England, seas shou ld build to over 20 feet. T he combination of high seas and stro ng winds will result in life-threatening conditio ns. Mariners are advised to be in po rt by tonight.

Other potential hazards include localiz ed flash flooding in urban
areas from as mu ch as 3 to 5 inches of ra in, and minor to moderate coastal floodi ng during times of high tide Tuesd ay and Wednesday.

One additional point: Many peop le like to head to the sho re to view large surf in the se situations. Please be safe and vi ew from a location away from breaki ng waves! Stay away from sea wal ls, jetties, or piers. Large waves c an easily sweep you into the wat er, putting you in a life threateni ng situation.


Keep your eye on TS Jo se, expected to be in our ar ea on Wednesday...and soon to be ba ck to a hurricane. Jose will featu re high surf, rip current, rain a nd up to mid CAT 1 for ce winds (cooler water should keep it fr om developing further). Never to early to ha ve a storm plan...and yes, we do aft er storm clean up!
Tracks current to 9/ 15 at 8am est.
