Taking Care of Fire Hydrants in Osseo
The Osseo Fire Department has important advice for winter: take the extra few minutes to clear snow from around fire hydrants. With more synthetic materials in our homes, a fire can double in size every 30 seconds to a minute. Every second counts in these life-saving situations, but firefighters can be slowed down if fire hydrants are buried under snow. Shoveling your sidewalks and driveways also helps firefighters respond more quickly and effectively.
