|Example of a hidden fire hydrant|
If you have a fire hydrant on or near your property please do not plant flowers, shrubs or anything that will block the view from the fire department. Consider planting ground cover instead.
Make sure to keep weeds or vegetation from blocking access or sight. Trim vegetation to maintain a minimum of a 3 foot clearance around the fire hydrant.
Firefighters look for fire hydrants in an emergency situation and every second counts.
