Don't Let Hydrants Hide

Clearing the snow from a fire hydrant is an easy way to help protect you, your family, and your neighbors. When firefighters have to locate and then shovel out fire hydrants time is lost that could be used to save life and property. 

Winter snow can hide hydrants making them difficult to find. Please help by adopting the fire hydrant closest to your home or business and keep them clear of snow. Also, it is smart to clear your home furnace and exhaust vents of snow that may have accumulated. Blocked vents can elevate levels of carbon monoxide an odorless yet lethal gas. Be safe when you are out there clearing blocked hydrants and exhaust vents.
