The Wellsville Fire Company would like everyone to stay safe during snowstorm "Stella". Many counties are under a winter storm warning. Please follow all saftety directions and stay off the roads during the height of the storm if possible.
With the expected amount of snow, we want everyone to be vigilant of what is going on in and around thier home. Be sure to clear your heat source exhaust vents (furnaces, fire places, etc). Do not use any kind of charcoal or gas grill as a heat source indoors if the power goes out. Be very cautious using candles.
