A Blocked Fire Hydrant Can Risk The Safety of Your Home

Even though some of the snow has melted over the past couple of days, more snow is headed our way. The Main-Transit Fire Department has asked residents to help with their efforts to clear the snow from fire hydrants.

It’s important for fire engines to hook up to a fire hydrant as soon as possible when they arrive at a fire scene. When hydrants are not cleared of snow and ice it costs firefighters critical time. If firefighters have to take several minutes to clear a hydrant before they can begin fighting a fire it can mean the difference between containing the fire and losing an entire home.

Residents are encouraged to clear a three foot radius around their neighborhood fire hydrant and keep it clear of snow and ice for the entire winter. Taking care of the hydrant in your neighborhood is an important, and potentially life saving service to your family, your neighbors and your community.
