Please Keep Fire Hydrants Clear

Shovel Fire Hydrants - 300

Residents and business owners are asked to please remember to shovel out around fire hydrants after each snowfall. It is very important to keep hydrants clear of snow and visible from the street.

If the fire department has to spend time trying to find a fire hydrant under the snow, they lose precious time needed to fight fires. A fire can double in size every 30 seconds. If it takes firefighters even two extra minutes to locate and dig out a hydrant the damage could be massive. Please talk with your neighbors to determine who will keep the hydrant clear. Remember, the house you help save may be your own.
