A Buried Hydrant On Route 111

A resident brings attention to a fire hydrant buried beneath of mountain of snow.

Gary George noticed a fire hydrants buried under a deep pile of snow and shared a photo of it in hopes it will be dug out to allow for easy access to town firefighters in case of an emergency.

Honey Tree Preschool and Childcare is fully equipped with a sprinkler system and firewalls. Our concern is for the houses across the street!

Safety for both occupancies should be noted, it becomes difficult to ask volunteer firefighters to find every fire hydrant and dig them all out after they have already delivered a free service above and beyond the scope of the last snow storm. Just to note as well, the sprinkler system still requires the Fire Service to connect their Fire Pump (Fire Pumping Apparatus or Engine) to the sprinkler system and supply water to it in order for it to function as it was designed.

If the snow was put there by a parking lot plower, they should remove it. Our VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT has plenty of other thing's they need to do. Like responding to a fire emergency or accident. Other wise, do like i did,,, dig it out your self!

Aren't there laws against doing this?
