OSWEGO, NY – Once again, the Oswego Fire Department is asking Oswego residents, if possible, to keep their hydrants clear of snow.
“We were forced due to heavy snowfall and poor visibility to pull the crews in this morning for safety reasons. When it clears and becomes safe again, we will resume clearing hydrants and are getting to them as fast as we can,” said Fire Chief Jeff McCrobie. “Also, if your neighborhood hydrant does not have a hydrant marker or it is not visible, please mark it with a stick, flag, or something to help us locate it in an emergency.”
The chief thanks all those residents throughout the city who make an extra and special effort to clear their neighborhood fire hydrant.
