Ithaca Fire Department: Please shovel out fire hydrants

ITHACA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A powerful winter storm rolled through the Central New York region recently, dropping two to three feet of snow on many communities.

The Ithaca Fire Department is asking people help remove snow from fire hydrants near their businesses and homes.

The department noted that any time they respond to a fire and encounter a fire hydrant surrounded by snow, it can cause a delay.

According to the Ithaca Fire Department, community members have “adopted” hydrants in the past.
