Emergency notices on NY FPF

Last Thursday’s extra posting on FPF (an alert to the village’s water shut-off) saved me a much inconvenience. I was preparing lots of food for a big family reunion meal. Thanks to FPF’s alert, we had drawn a goodly supply of water before the shut-off came. Although the Post Star newspaper and the hand-delivered notices came on Friday, the Argyle FPF was our first alert—and it saved me a lot of frustration.

The folks in Argyle, NY make great use of their Front Porch Forum, as shown by today’s posting above.
