Help by Clearing Your Fire Hydrant of Snow
The members of the Dormont Fire Department are encouraging residents and business owners to “adopt a fire hydrant” near their property and keep it shoveled away from it during the winter season. This will ensure hydrants are visible and will greatly speed the response time in case of an emergency.
One more reminder: Make sure your house numbers and the numbers on your mailbox haven’t been covered by snow. Having your address readily visible helps fire, police or ambulance crews find your home more quickly in an emergency.
