With the coming of the fourth Nor’easter storm of the season, the Downingtown Fire Dept. would like remind those residents and business owners with fire hydrants in your neighborhood, to please shovel the snow, at least three feet in all directions from around the fire hydrant. And, to shovel an additional three feet wide path out to the street, as well.
By taking a few minutes to shovel-up our fire hydrants will help us provide you with prompt an efficient service, if that water source is needed. If our volunteer firefighters need take the time to shovel the snow from around the fire hydrant, during an emergency, that will take them away from their duties at the emergency scene. We ask that you please help us, help you!
