Every Second Counts
Most people think of escape plans and prevention when they think about fire safety but there is a much neglected and overlooked resource to consider.
The Forgotten Red-Head!
Prevention and a plan are obviously high priority, but when is the last time you thought about that fire hydrant up the street from your home or business? Keeping it clear of snow can save valuable time when time is of the essence.
If you have thought of it, but your thoughts go something like "It's not my responsibility to clear it of snow" you should reconsider.
Saving Valuable Seconds
Depending on the city or town you live in, keeping the hydrant clear of snow and debris could quite possibly be your responsibility. Check with your local fire department or town hall to find out the laws in your area.
Beyond that, keeping it clear only benefits you. If you are the victim of a fire, what do you want the firemen spending their time on? Clearing the hydrant or fighting the fire? Be smart. Be a good neighbor. Do what's Right.
