Fire department urges citizens to keep fire hydrants clear


The recent combination of cold temperatures and heavy snow has made extra work for everyone just to be able to get into homes and businesses, including emergency response personnel.Lake Dillon Fire Authority is asking property owners and management companies to help keep fire hydrants free from heavy snowfall and help all of us protect lives and property.In many areas of Summit County, there is a fire hydrant within 500 to 800 feet of most homes and businesses. That means many hydrants within Lake Dillon’s fire district that can get buried by snowplows clearing driveways.Keeping the hydrants clear of snow will allow the fire department has access in case of an emergency.
