Wauseon Fire Department Reminds Residents Of Winter Fire Hydrant Safety

VR LOGO - WEBThe Wauseon Fire Department needs your help. Do you have a fire hydrant in your front yard or close to your home or business? If so, take time to clear snow, ice and debris from around it.Hydrants need a 3-foot radius around them.

It normally takes a firefighter about 45 seconds to connect the hose to a fire hydrant. Hydrants buried in the snow or ice are hard to find and the firefighter must spend precious moments clearing away the snow just to hook up a hose. The extra time might be needed to save a home, or more importantly, to save a life.
