Firefighters: Remember to keep hydrants, vents clear after large snowfall

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, MN -

With all the recent snowfall, firefighters are urging people to keep snow and ice clear from fire hydrants. 

Snow can make it hard for fire crews to find a hydrant quickly when they have an active fire. 

Firefighters in are asking people to help by keeping the hydrant closest to your home or business clear of snow.

That means clearing a 360-degree, three foot circle around the hydrant. 

They also ask you to check and clear all home furnace and exhaust vents of snow to prevent potential CO poisoning.
