Nelsonville FD to host Santa Parade Wed, 12/15/21, at 4PM, looping around town for 1 hour, stay on porch or yard for safety

This holiday season again looks very different than in years past. Because of this our crew members have made the decision to help Santa again and escort the jolly old elf throughout town. After a few meetings with Santa Claus and the Fire Pup we have a plan!

On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, starting at 4:00 PM firefighters will escort Santa Claus and the Fire Pup throughout town. We will cover most city streets so the kids can see Santa Claus and the Fire pup. The route is posted and will take approximately 1 hour to complete. As the Santa Parade leaves the fire station, it will head East looping around back to Lake Hope Drive. If there is a Fire or EMS call during this time we will continue after. We ask that everyone stay on your porch or in your yard to limit groups to households. Santa Claus looks forward to seeing all of you again this year!

Nelsonville needs help with flood pictures of Nelsonville, specifically on the Canal Street side of the tracks

Hi folks, I have some bad news and need your help. The EPA is trying to force new flood maps on Nelsonville, and they are just as bad as the 2013 maps. I need help with flood pictures in Nelsonville, specifically on the Canal Street side of the tracks. I know there is an old one of a fire truck with water up to the tail board from the 60s/70s. What I am trying to prove or disprove is flooding on the Canal Street side of the tracks. My understanding is 1907 was the last flood in town from the river. The more recent high-water events have been storm water backed up. Please correct me if I am wrong and fill in all the pieces I am missing.

Thank you!
