ENGINE 1 RESPONDS TO HAZMAT CALL

Friday, September 2, 2016   Today, we closed Gilead Road for approx 35 minutes as we assessed a possible Hazmat situation in the roadway.

Our investigation revealed less than 1 gallon of Muriatic Acid spilled onto the roadway when a partially full 1 gallon container of the product fell off a passing vehicle. We immediately protected the nearby storm drain and cleaned up the spill. Roadway was reopened at 10:10am.

Thank you for your patience!

SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION

Monday, August 29, 2016  CMS is back in session!We thought that we’d offer up some bus stop safety tips that are very important to us. Please help us keep the kids safe and free from tragedy:

  • DO NOT text and drive. Every morning we see drivers with their phones out, texting, emailing, surfing the web. Not only is this illegal – it is EXTREMELY dangerous. No matter how important YOU think you are it only takes a few seconds for tragedy to strike. PLEASE keep the phones out of your hand

  • It is ILLEGAL to pass a stopped school bus, if the red lights are on and the stop arm is out, you must stop. If you see someone pass a bus, please grab a vehicle description, tag number and direction of travel and report them to Police ASAP.

  • The 10ft area around a school bus is the most dangerous place for a child. Please watch out for them and be extra vigilant. Kids can be unpredictable and can dart out into traffic. 

  • Please yield to ALL pedestrians in crosswalks, never stop and or block a crosswalk. 

  • Please pay close attention and obey the speed limits in school zones, Huntersville Police will be focusing on these areas throughout Town. They WILL catch you…SLOW DOWN.

  • Dress your child in bright colors if they are at the bus stop in the morning, help them be seen by drivers.

There will be a contractor on Kerns Road doing a full depth reclamation on the roadway for the next two to three weeks (weather permitting).Full depth reclamation saves money and rebuilds the roadway by recycling the existing roadway. Kerns Road will be restricted to LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY. There will be active traffic control at the worksite as it moves up and down Kerns Rd.

Please adjust your commuting routes accordingly and if you MUST travel Kerns Rd, please drive slowly and expect debris on the roadway.
