In the event of a fire emergency during the winter, could firefighters find the hydrant near your home? Or does it get buried under a pile of snow? The City encourages residents to clear the hydrant area near their home and keep it clear throughout the winter season. This will ensure hydrants are visible and will greatly speed the response time in case of an emergency.

Some hydrants are covered in red plastic bags during the winter. These bags prevent road salt from corroding the hydrants and ensure that the hydrants are easy to open. These bags are made of a high grade plastic and can be easily ripped or cut open in the event of an emergency.
