Public Safety Department Reminds Residents and Businesses to Clear Fire Hydrants

Release date: 1/29/2014

The Farmington Public Safety Department reminds all residents and business owners to clear the snow from around all fire hydrants. It is important that fire hydrants are visible and accessible at all times of the year, but this is especially true during the winter.

Heavy snowfall accumulations and snow clearing operations can leave fire hydrants buried, causing difficult access and lack of visibility. It is absolutely vital that emergency personnel have free and clear access and unrestricted use of fire hydrants at all times.

Farmington fire fighters appreciate the extra effort and time involved with clearing snow from fire hydrants. If you have any questions or concerns regarding fire hydrants, call Farmington Public Safety at 248-871-2820.

Make sure your fire hydrant looks like this
