Winter is here

Good afternoon, residents. Our Fire Marshal and Fire Chief would like to remind everyone of the importance of clearing around any fire hydrants on or near your property. A hydrant covered in snow prevent firefighters from being able to quickly extinguish a fire in your or your neighbors' home. It is important for anyone whose property is adjacent to a fire hydrant to remove snow from and around it as soon as possible after a snowfall.

Snow should be cleared three feet around the hydrant with a path to the street. If you know someone who has a hydrant attached to their property and they are either incapable of removing the snow or simply haven't cleared it, PLEASE HELP protect them, yourself and the rest of your neighbors by shoveling the hydrant out on your own. This simple good deed can save lives and property damage.

Please don’t continually leave it, storm after storm, year after year, to the property owner (many whom are elderly) residing behind that hydrant. Many hundreds of people enjoy protection from that single hydrant. Help out! The work of just a few minutes might later prove to be vital to the safety of you or your neighbors!
