Clearing up

The Public Awareness Committee at the Westland Fire Department recently reminded residents of the need to keep fire hydrants accessible during snow storms. Keeping the hydrants clear of snow and ice will assure the safety of the community, officials said, and ensure that firefighters can access them quickly during an emergency. They suggest clearing away any snow and ice 3-feet from all sides of the hydrant with a path to the street to allow firefighters to work quickly.
