After receiving over two-feet of snow, firefighters tell us how much snow you should remove from your area fire hydrant.
Welcome to You Ask... Patch Answers where we answer readers questions. We recently received questions about clearing neighborhood fire hydrants to help fire departments. But how much of the hydrant should we clear? How many feet around the hydrant will help the firefighters? Here is your answer: According to Stoneham Fire Chief Joe Rolli, fire departments need about two feet of snow cleared away from the hydrant. "The front of the hydrant is most important because that is where the hose gets hooked up," said Chief Rolli. Also, the nut on top of the hydrant must be clear, as firefighters need to use it to turn it on.
