Will the Fire Department dig out fire hydrants after a snow storm?
Between heavy snowfall and plows clearing streets, many hydrants become buried and hidden under snow piles during the winter. Please pitch in and help dig out fire hydrants that are buried on or near your property. Although firefighters can find the buried hydrants by using maps in an emergency situation, hydrants can be located more quickly and firefighting efforts can be initiated faster if hydrants are not covered in snow. Every minute counts!
