Clear Your Fire Hydrant

The Park Ridge Fire Department is requesting your help in making our jobs easier.  With the large amount of snowfall that has happened this winter many fire hydrants have become obscured by snow piles.


These obstructed fire hydrants can greatly hamper our abilities to provide adequate fire protection to you and your neighbors.  I am asking each resident to take a look around their neighborhood and ensure that the fire hydrants have been shoveled out and are free of any other obstructions.  An easily accessible fire hydrant will save us valuable time in an emergency.  

Finally, when you are clearing the snow from your property and fire hydrants be sure to check that your house number is still clearly visible from the street.
