[ARCHIVED] Clear Snow from Fire Hydrants

Clearing Snow from Fire Hydrants Can Save Lives


A picture containing text</p><p>Description automatically generatedWe shovel our driveways and sidewalks, but there is one area some may forget. A clearly visible, accessible fire hydrant could save your home or even your life. When a fire hydrant is buried in snow, firefighters lose valuable time trying to locate it and dig it out when they arrive at a fire. You can perform a valuable public service and protect yourself, your family and your neighbors by taking on the responsibility of shoveling out and clearing a fire hydrant near your home during and after a snowstorm. With snow soon to be on its way, we’d like to share with you these suggestions: 


  • Know the location of the nearest fire hydrants
  • Make sure they are shoveled after each snowfall 
  • Clear the snow 3 feet around the hydrant so firefighters have enough room to use the hydrant


The City of Pewaukee appreciates all our community members who take the time to shovel out the fire hydrants.
