In an emergency, every second counts.

Winter weather can create fire safety hazards, including heavy snowfall that can conceal or obstruct fire hydrants.

Most Fire Departments recommend clearing at least a 3 foot area around the hydrant for needed access.

Access to the hydrants during the Winter months is generally considered the responsibility of the residents occupying property near a hydrant.
