Fire Dept Seeks Help Clearing Snow From Hydrants

The Golden Valley Fire Department is seeking help to keep the fire hydrants in your neighborhood clear of snow. The most recent snowstorm has made many hydrants inaccessible, creating a potential hazard if they are needed to fight a fire.

A six-foot clear space around the circumference of the hydrant will help reduce the time it takes firefighters to hook up hoses if a fire occurs in your neighborhood. The best time to shovel out a hydrant is after the streets are plowed, before snow accumulates and freezes.

Please, consider grabbing a shovel to give your fire department, and your community, a helping hand.
