It’s one of things that you don’t think about until it’s usually too late. All across the county, fire hydrants lay buried beneath the snow, hidden from plain view. Though the fire department has a general idea where each hydrant is located, do you really want them spending time digging it out while your house burns?
I dug one out this afternoon. It took less than 15 minutes. You can too.
There are several efforts underway to mobilize the population to help out. In a recent facebook posting Ken Ulman even provided a link to find the individual hydrants in your neighborhood. Just type in your address and voila!
