Winter Home Safety Tips from the Brooklyn Park Fire Department
Shoveling snow is a winter task that actually can help keep you safe. The Brooklyn Park Fire Department relies on residents to shovel a three foot wide path leading up their driveway and sidewalk to the front door so they can enter during a medical emergency. In the event of a fire, shoveling can help there, too. Clearing snow three feet around fire hydrants and shovel back, side and emergency exits of your house.
