With large snow fall comes certain responsibilities. Danbury residents and business owners are being reminded to shovel the sidewalks in front of their properties.
There are over 2,000 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 asked residents to pitch in an make hydrants on their property accessible.
Omasta says sidewalks should also be cleared to make it easier for firefighters to respond to an emergency. Fire officials are also asking that if drivers have to be out on the roads, to be aware of emergency vehicles and let the units pass.
