Hydrant Snow Removal

This is a friendly reminder to residents who have fire hydrants on or near their property, to remove the snow around them as soon as possible after the storm. This is a town ordinance in Manchester, but it is important everywhere. Clear a four-foot area in all directions around the hydrant and a three-foot wide path from the street to the fire hydrant. If you know of a resident who has a fire hydrant on their property and is incapable of removing the snow or hasn’t cleared it, please, be a good neighbor and help protect them, yourself, and the rest of your neighbors by shoveling the hydrant out. This good deed will assist the fire department to save valuable time and could help save a life. For more information and other related life safety subjects, please visit: Manchester Fire Department
