Officials are reminding residents and business-owners that a fire hydrants can sometimes get covered in snow.
In an emergency, firefighters are left trying to dig out the hydrant.
If you have a hydrant on your property, officials ask that you dig around it at least three feet.
You should also keep ice clear from the area around the hydrant as well.
