Get Ready for Fire Pit Season

The snow and ice are gone, and it’s time to move back outdoors. Gathering by an outdoor fire pit is a great way to create a physically distanced, socially connected, warm, and cozy setting. But there are a few things to know before you break out the s’mores supplies and strike the match.

First and foremost, if you are new to using a fire pit in your yard, call your local fire department to check fire pit regulations in your city or town — some municipalities prohibit fire pits, chimineas, and outdoor fireplaces. Once you've determined that it's safe to use a fire pit in your yard, take a few minutes to become familiar with Massachusetts fire pit regulations as well as fire-building and fire safety skills listed below.

MA Highway Exit Numbers Are Changing

Have you noticed the exit number changes on I-95 or Route 128 recently?

This month you'll see more changes to exit signs on both highways.

The exit numbers have already been changed on the Massachusetts Turnpike. Crews are currently working to finish Route 3, and some signs have been changed on I-95. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is converting all exit numbers on freeways to a milepost-based numbering system, per a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirement. Currently, interstates and freeways in Massachusetts utilize a sequential exit numbering method. 

Why the Exit Numbers Change?

Spring Home Maintenance Tips

The milder days of spring are a perfect time to do a thorough spring cleaning and perform home maintenance. After a long winter, it is a good idea to spend time on preventive measures to help maintain your home and property throughout the year. Tasks such as cleaning out your gutters, checking for dead trees and branches and cleaning and inspecting home mechanical and plumbing systems, such as heating and air conditioning equipment, can help make spring a season of safety.

Cleaning and maintenance of your home should be done inside and out. Although the tasks are different, checking to see if all the elements of your home are in good working order can help keep your family safe and your maintenance expenses lower over the long run.
