Red Wing Fire Department Clearing Hydrants

After receiving more than 20 inches of snow the past few days, the Red Wing Fire Department is reminding people to help protect yourself and your neighborhood by clearing the hydrant nearest you before an emergency strikes.

Seconds matter in an emergency and when that emergency is a fire, extra seconds spent clearing a hydrant are seconds not spent fighting the fire.

Make sure the hydrant is free of ice and snow, and clear a 3-foot area around it.

If there is still snow blocking the hydrant from street access, remove that snow as well.
