Erie Firefighters Ask for Help Clearing Fire Hydrants

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters are asking for your help to keep the fire hydrants in your neighborhood clear of snow.

They said valuable minutes can be lost searching for and digging out a hydrant during a fire.

We found numerous firefighters late Thursday morning digging out fire hydrants on Erie's lower west side near 3rd Street.

Many hydrants were buried in the record-breaking snow and have become hard to find if a fire breaks out.

Firefighters ask you to clear all snow and ice around the hydrant, including a path to the street, so firefighters have room to work.
