Help Your Fire Department Keep Our Village Safe By Clearing Hydrants

January 2, 2019

Snow can prove especially challenging when trying to fight fires because in many cases it makes the fire hydrants hard to see or get to. If there’s a fire hydrant near your home that is covered with snow, please do your part to keep it visible this winter by clearing at least a three-foot radius around the hydrant so firefighters have easy access and making a path from the hydrant to the street so it can be accessible quickly. Remember, every second counts!

If you see ice around the fire hydrant it could be a leak; contact the Public Works Department immediately at (708) 343-5128.
