Hinsdale Fire Department urges residents to keep hydrants clear of snow

HINSDALE – With snow having piled up around town, Hinsdale Fire Chief Rick Ronovksy is encouraging residents to “adopt a hydrant” near their homes by removing any snow that is covering the hydrant, according to a Hinsdale Fire Department news release.

The large amount of snow accumulation, combined with the after effects of plowing roads, driveways and parking lots has left the nearly 1,000 fire hydrants partially or completely buried in snow.

The department is asking that residents make a snow-free, 3-foot perimeter around the hydrant, allowing fire crews to access the hydrant if it is needed.

For more information, call 630-789-7060.
