Sycamore firefighters urge extra care for hydrants

SYCAMORE – Sycamore firefighters are reminding residents to pay special attention to fire hydrants when shoveling snow and ice.

They encourage residents to adopt a hydrant near their home and be sure to clear two or three feet around it, as well as a small path from the hydrant to the street, according to a news release.

This could save firefighters valuable time locating and using a hydrant if a nearby structure is on fire.

The Sycamore Fire Department invites volunteer organizations to participate in the “Adopt a Hydrant Program” as well.

This is a great way for organizations to volunteer for community service.

For information, contact Assistant Chief Art Zern at 815-895-4514.
