SVFD warns of blocking hydrants | Public Spaces
From Assistant Fire Mashal/Public Information Officer Bill Clifford of the Spokane Valley Fire Department:
Spokane Valley Fire Department is asking the public and snow plow operators to be careful when shoveling sidewalks and plowing streets. Fire hydrants are becoming obstructed from snowfall and being covered by snow plows. Spokane Valley Fire Department asks that if you have a fire hydrant(s) on your property to keep them clear and visible at all times. Shoveling around the fire hydrants will assist us when locating and hooking up at times of a fire. Also be aware of plowing in cul-de-sacs and in a fire department turn-around. Fire apparatus need the entire area to maneuver. If you park your vehicle on the street, make sure you park as close to the curb as possible not blocking the road and leaving enough room for emergency vehicles.
