Don’t forget fire hydrants when you clear snow
What a winter we’re having! And, it’s still snowing!
Although we all would rather be outside enjoying this winter wonderland, shoveling and snow blowing is a necessary chore. We’d like to send out a friendly reminder that when you’re clearing your driveway of snow, please don’t forget to also clear out the area around any fire hydrant near your home.
It’s a critical but an often-overlooked task. If emergency workers need fire hydrant access to water to battle a blaze, seconds count. Time spent shoveling out a fire hydrant is time lost to save a life or a home.
Please do not hesitate to contact the City at 208-787-2940 should you have any questions. Have fun out there and stay safe!
