      Remember to Shovel Out Your Nearest Hydrant
      01/27/15 - Rockland Fire Fighters
      Winter storms and plowing operations can often hide the hydrants under a mountain of snow making them impossible to find quickly. In the event of a fire, firefighters have to locate and shovel out fire hydrants before hooking up to them. Precious time is lost and when a fire occurs we need that time to save lives and keep damage to a minimum.
