Dig Those Hydrants

An alert “06880” reader writes:

I dug out our fire hydrant this morning. This afternoon (while I was on the roof shoveling snow and removing icicles) I saw a fire truck drive slowly by.

I assume they were on the hunt for buried hydrants. I saved them one, at least.

So, Westporters, a reminder: Please shovel your hydrants. The home you save may be your own.

  1. Hooray for you! I wouldn’t have thought of that. mmm

  2. Last week, while shoveling out my driveway, a fire engine drove slowly by, no lights or siren. After it stopped, two firemen dug out the hydrant near my house. I waved my thanks and received one in return as they drove by.

  3. Perfect. I’ll let her know Now , more snow. Yuk!!!

    Don’t forget catch basin grates, too. Also, Dan, not a great idea to be shovelling off your roof. Even if yours may be a flat roof (?), you may be sending a dangerous message to others.

    Does Westport mail out “Preparing for Ice & Snow” pamphlets to households and businesses?
