When clearing snow, Newtown Hook and Ladder officials are reminding residents to shovel out any fire hydrants you see because it could save a house, or even a life. Fire Departments around the region ask for a three-foot radius around hydrants. The Monroe Volunteer Fire Department says uncleared hydrants will cause a significant delay in the event of an emergency. There are over 2,00 fire hydrants in Danbury and Assistant Fire Chief Mark Omasta says they can't get to them all after a storm to clear snow from around them. He also asked residents to pitch in an make hydrants on their property.
