With the upcoming snow storm approaching, just a reminder to dig out the Fire Hydrants as soon as you can. Also if there is a Metro Transit Bus Stop near your house, dig it out too. Your neighbors who ride the bus will thank you.

We never get tired of this video below. Okay it is a little bit corny but the message of cleaning off the nearest fire hydrant to your house is an important one. Time is of the essence when the nearest Ladder Company of the St Paul’s Bravest show up to put out a fire. Let us say that again, Time is very important to saving lives in a fire. If a firefighter has to waste time digging a hydrant out of a snow bank, your loved one, or your pets, or your neighbors, and their pets could die.
You can take turns with your neighbor over who gets to do the honor of Digging out the Hydrant.
