Keep Hydrants Clear This Winter

Clearing Snow from Fire Hydrants Can Save Lives

 

Winter hydrant careA clearly visible, accessible fire hydrant could save your home – or even your life. If a fire hydrant is buried in snow, firefighters can lose valuable time trying to locate it when they arrive at a fire. You can perform a valuable public service and protect yourself, your family and your neighbors by taking on the responsibility of shoveling out and clearing a fire hydrant near your home during and after a snowstorm. With snow soon to be on its way, we’d like to share with you these suggestions: 

 

  • Know the location of the nearest fire hydrants.
  • Make sure they are shoveled after each snowfall.
  • Clear the snow 3 feet around the hydrant so firefighters have enough room to use the hydrant.

 

Taking the time to remove the snow from around a hydrant near you can save precious minutes in case of a fire.
