Clear Those Fire Hydrants!

With inclement weather approaching this winter, it’s important to remind USR residents to clear the fire hydrant in front of or near their home. When seconds count and fire doubles in size every 30 seconds, a buried hydrant could jeopardize the lives of residents and firefighters alike and risk additional property damage. Please help us help you and clear those fire hydrants!
