Please help clear hydrants
By sharing the shoveling, neighbors can work together to keep their homes safe. “Time is of the essence during a house fire,” so the Rosemount Fire Department is asking residents to make sure hydrants serving their neighborhoods are clear of snow and ice.
City crews cannot dig out all hydrants immediately after a snowfall. Fire trucks typically hold only a few hundred gallons of water, which can be used up in the first couple of minutes of firefighting. Because fires can double in size every minute, there’s a real risk to lives and property if Firefighters have to dig or chop their way clear to a hydrant.
Residents can help out by clearing the snow within two feet of the hydrants that protect their homes. It’s also helpful if there’s a path two feet wide from each hydrant to the street.
