Fire Hydrants During a Snowstorm: If there is a fire hydrant near your home, please take a few extra minutes to ensure the hydrant is clear of snow. You should clear a path to the street and three feet around the hydrant. This ensures that in the event of an emergency, the fire division is able to find and use the fire hydrant.
