Cleared Fire Hydrants Matter When Seconds Count

Posted 1:14 p.m.

If you’re out shoveling snow, please take some time to clear fire hydrants. Seconds count if a fire breaks out, so a cleared fire hydrant will make a significant difference. Clear a three-foot radius around hydrants. There’s a lot of snow, so it may be tempting to move snow from around your car or sidewalk to any open space, but please keep hydrants clear. Our firefighters thank you in advance!
