Keep Fire Hydrants Cleared of Snow

With around a foot of snow on the ground and more on the way this weekend, it’s important to keep those fire hydrants cleared.

Manchester Fire Chief Mike Ryan is asking everyone – in all communities – to clear snow away from the fire hydrant if you have one near your property.

It can take two or three firefighters three minutes to dig out a hydrant – in that time, a fire can double in size.
