Twin Tiers Residents Asked to Clear Hydrants
People who live near a fire hydrant are asked to clear the snow around the structures so they are easy to find in an emergency.
Fire hydrants are easily buried by snow from shoveling, snow blowing and passing plows.
While the region didn’t get huge amounts of snow, streets are narrowed by the removal efforts and motorists are encouraged to park in driveways or parking lots if possible.
Remember, blowing or shoveling snow into the street is prohibited in all municipalities and residents tossing snow into the road could be ticketed.
As plows and salt trucks continue to work through the day, New York State Police remind motorists to give all vehicles extra space during bad weather, but pay special attention to public works trucks.
