Thank you for keeping hydrants clear

To The Editor:

As the final, I hope, snow showers of the season blow about outside, I want to thank my neighbors that pushed snow, blew snow, or threw snow to keep the fire hydrant clear in our block. I also want to thank the city Department of Public Works crews that cleared snow from the corner, giving us a place to put the additional snow that fell throughout the winter.

In our block we keep our hydrant cleared in a very informal manner. If you get there first, you handle it. We have a motto, “The home I save might be my own!” We protect our neighbors’ lives, their pets’ lives, their homes, and their possessions. When firemen arrive at a structure fire, time is of the essence, and valuable time is lost if they must clear the hydrant.

Again, thanks to all who made our lives safer.
