"When clearing driveways, sidewalks and parking lots of snow please don’t
bury fire hydrants under piles of snow," the fire department said in a press release. "It is best to keep an area of 3 feet clear in every direction around a
fire hydrant. With everyone’s help
we can make sure fire hydrants are accessible for emergency access."
