Custer Volunteer Fire Department
"Professional Firefighters - Providing Volunteer Services"
You clear the snow from your driveway, you clear the snow from your sidewalk...but there's one thing you may be forgetting to clear.
Custer Volunteer Fire Department is asking you to take a minute to clear the snow from around the fire hydrants on your block. The hydrants are placed close to roads so they are easy for fire trucks to reach. That also makes them susceptible to being buried by snow plows.
You aren't legally responsible to dig out a fire hydrant in front of your house. However if its not clear and a fire breaks out then firefighters will have to spend their time digging instead of extinguishing flames.
