March 24, 2014 - Mill Creek Fire Company's annual donation request is well under way. On March 24, 2013 we mailed 17,689 letters to the residents of our fire district. For many decades Mill Creek Fire Company has sent out a donation request letter asking for the community's assistance in supporting their local volunteer fire company. Our goal for 2014 is $200,000. The fund drive will continue throughout the year so we can try to reach our goal.
The volunteer fire service saves the residents of the State of Delaware over $181 million annually.(1) Delaware is protected by volunteer firefighters throughout the State except for the City of Wilmington. In some cases the State's volunteer fire service supplements their volunteers with employees to staff the ambulance due to the considerable demand for this service. With over 4,400 medical emergencies last year, Mill Creek Fire Company supplements their volunteer staff with nine full time employeesalong with part time staff. That's an average of 12 ambulance responses per day.
We encourage all residents to support their local volunteer fire company. We would also like to express a sincere "thank you" to everyone that has sent in their donation so far this year.

Miss Utility is your partner when it comes to safe digging! Having a variety of utility services could mean you have lines and pipes running underground – do you know where they are? If you plan on any type of excavation or digging on your property, Miss Utility can help.
Miss Utility is a one-call notification center that informs subscribing facility/utility owners of proposed excavation. So, if you plan to install a new mailbox or plant a garden, contact the Miss Utility Call Center at least (48) business hours in Maryland and the District of Columbia and two full working days in Delaware (excluding weekends and legal holidays) prior to your intended digging. We will notify our member facility/utility owners of your proposed plans to dig; they in turn will locate (mark your dig site or verify the site is clear) before you put that shovel in the ground.
On January 1st, 2011 a new law to protect emergency workers and first responders took effect in Delaware. Called the "Move Over" law, it requires any driver approaching a stopped emergency vehicle that has its lights activated, to either move over into a lane that is not next to the emergency vehicle, or to reduce his or her speed to a "safe speed" while passing the emergency vehicle if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe. The law applies specifically to roadways having two or more lanes going in the same directions.
