Fargo residents asked to clear fire hydrantsFARGO – Fargo residents are being asked by fire department leaders to clear snow away from fire hydrants located near or on their property.
This will ensure that in the event of a fire, responding crews can quickly locate and connect to the hydrant, according to a fire department news release.
There are approximately 6,500 hydrants in Fargo. If a fire hydrant hasn’t been cleared, firefighters could lose valuable time as crews locate and clear the hydrant in order to use it, the release stated.
