Help Your Fire Department to Help You!

The Town of Huntington Fire Chiefs’ Council asks you to clear snow from fire hydrants near your home, which can help you and your neighbors in the event of a fire. With the numerous snowstorms that have hit the area, many fire hydrants have become buried in local neighborhoods which will be a problem for the fire department’s water supply should a fire occur. In a fire, every minute counts and the sooner that firefighters can reach a hydrant, the quicker they can extinguish the fire.
