Hydrants need shoveling too!

After a snowstorm most of us are concerned about shoveling our walks and driveways.

The Fire Department has an additional concern - clearing snow from hydrants!

So how do those hydrants get cleared? By our Firefighters of course!

After a heavy snow out people will spend time scouting and clearing hydrants.

Why do we do this?

We don't want to have to do this during a fire response when seconds count. Thus our Firefighters - career and volunteer - spend time clearing hydrants of snow as a preventative measure after heavy snowstorms.
