Clear out those fire hydrants

This fire hydrant is one of many in the Spokane Valley area that have been blocked in by snow berms. The Spokane Valley Fire Department is asking residents to keep the area around hydrants clear.  (Photo courtesy the Spokane Valley Fire Department)

The Spokane Valley Fire Department has sent out a plea to Spokane Valley area residents to clear snow from around fire hydrants. Snow plows and snow blowers are building up berms around the hydrants that can slow firefighters if they have to hook up to a hydrant to fight a fire. So take a look around your home and if you see a hydrant, shovel it out. Photo courtesy the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
