Thank you to all for keeping hydrant clear


As the final, I hope, snow showers of the season blow about outside, I want to thank my neighbors who pushed snow, blew snow or threw snow to keep the fire hydrant clear on our block. I also want to thank the city Department of Public Works crews who cleared snow from the corner, giving us a place to put the additional snow that fell throughout the winter.

On our block, we keep our hydrant cleared in a very informal manner. If you get there first, you handle it.

We have a motto, “The home I save might be my own!” We protect our neighbors’ lives, their pets’ lives, their homes and their possessions.

When firemen arrive at a structural fire, time is of the essence, and valuable time is lost if they must clear the hydrant. Again, thanks to all who made our lives safer.
