Help Keep Fire Hydrants Accessible
Wintry weather can create fire safety hazards, such as ice or heavy snowfall that can obstruct fire hydrants. In an emergency, every second matters. Fire hydrants that are blocked, concealed or difficult to access due to snow or ice can impede emergency fire response. Hydrants covered in snow can be difficult to locate, and uncovering them can waste valuable time needed during a fire fight.
You can help reduce the risk by keeping nearby fire hydrants accessible and clear of ice and snow. Keeping them clear can mean easier access to water and more time doing what really matters — fighting the fire.
