FIRE HYDRANT CLEARING

February 6th, 2015

With the amount of snow we have received to date, and more on the way, The Amsterdam Fire Department asks that the residents and/or owners of residential and commercial properties please, IF THEY ARE CAPABLE, clear their fire hydrants that are near their home/businesses.

The fire hydrants are slowly starting to disappear, making our job, when we pull up to a fire, a little more difficult and time consuming.

PLEASE: Put some type of marker in the snow bank near the hydrant, a wooden stake or a reflector, this will help us locate the hydrant while responding. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO, please clear the snow around the hydrant.

If you need assistance or are incapable of clearing the snow, please call the Amsterdam Fire Department Non-Emergency Line 684-6301 and we will clear the hydrant for you.

A fire doubles in size every 60 seconds. If it takes us one or two minutes to locate and clear a fire hydrant, that came make the difference between saving and losing a home.
