Remember to clear snow from fire hydrants

Not only has the frequent, heavy snow caused problems on the roadways for motorists, it has the potential to cause problems for local firefighters. Logan City is reminding residents that if they have a fire hydrant near their property that they clear a three foot area surrounding it.

In a press release, Emily Malik reminds people 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.
