Coldwater fire department asks for help in keeping fire hydrants clear of snow

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The Coldwater fire department has been sending personnel out to clear hydrants as time permits but due to the great number of hydrants Fire Chief Rich Sherman says they need the public’s assistance. Sherman says there are several points to keep in mind: It is illegal to intentionally cover fire hydrants with snow; hydrants are difficult if not impossible to see, especially at night,  when they are covered by snow; snow covered fire hydrants may become frozen rendering them useless in the event of a fire; delays in locating fire hydrants could result in a catastrophic fire loss of someone’s home or business.
