The Blizzard of 2013 left the fire hydrant at the corner of our street plowed in. So, my husband dug it out. The fire department can only get to them so fast.
Time spent going to the next hydrant or digging it out is time lost during a fire and can lead to serious injury.
So, if you live next to or near a fire hydrant and see that it is covered in snow, go dig it out. While no one likes to take on more shoveling than they have to, the time it takes to dig out that hydrant may save a life - possibly your own or a family member's.
If you are not able to shovel it out yourself, at least call the fire department and let them know it needs to be dug out so they can send someone out to take care of it.
