Winter Storms – Clear Your Fire Hydrants!
Yesterday, approximately 13.5″ of snow is on the ground around Centereach and it’s surrounding areas.
This high amount of snow will cover fire hydrants and the area around them. Preparing and charging a fire hydrant is one of the most important and fundamental objectives of the fire department during a fire call.
Hydrants supply water to the apparatus, which enables our units to attack the fire effectively and aggressively.
Please take a moment to clear a path to your nearest fire hydrant and at least a 3 feet circumference around the Hydrant. This allows our fire personnel to safely work around the hydrant.
