If you guessed that what was wrong was that a car was parked in front of the fire hydrant, you’d be right. However, since the hydrant was completely covered with snow, the driver probably couldn’t even tell it was there.
The Cedar Springs Fire Department is asking city residents to please help keep the city’s fire hydrants clear of snow. Our firefighters often spend several hours shoveling out hydrants after a snowfall, and if an emergency should arise, (such as in the case of a house fire) hydrants need to be in clear view. So if you have one near your house, a few extra minutes shoveling might make the difference!
