The Sherburn Fire Department would like to remind you that a clearly visible, accessible fire hydrant could save your home – or even your life. If a fire hydrant is lost or buried in snow, firefighters can lose valuable time trying to locate it when they first arrive at a fire. You can perform a valuable public service and protect yourself, your family and your neighbors by taking the responsibility for shoveling out and clearing any fire hydrants near your home during and after a snowstorm. With more snow sure to be on the way, we’d like to offer these suggestions:
- Know the location of all fire hydrants in your neighborhood.
- Make sure they are shoveled clear after each snowfall.
- Clear away any snow and ice in the area surrounding these fire hydrants.
- Clear the snow three feet all around the hydrant so firefighters have enough room to connect a hose.
We would also like to remind you to look out for your elderly or handicap neighbors as well, by taking a few extra minutes to shovel out their hydrants.
Please take some time now to save precious minutes in case of a fire. A few scoops of snow today could make all the difference later. Thank you for your cooperation!
