Please take a look outside and see if you can find your nearest fire hydrant. In an emergency, is it visible and is it accessible ? Take a few minutes to clear it of snow, and make sure the flag is easy to see. Make it easy for the firemen to find in an emergency. There are hundreds of hydrants located throughout the city, and we do not have them all memorized. Minutes can save lives and property, possibly yours or your neighbors. Please adopt a hydrant as your very own.
