Area residents urged to clear out fire hydrants


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Just a friendly reminder to help out local firefighters-- when shoveling snow, it's appreciated when an extra minute or two is taken to clear access to fire hydrants.

The extra snow can impede the speed with which emergency personnel can respond to a fire. With snowfall accumulating as much as it has in recent days, sometimes hydrants can be completely obscured or otherwise unable to be readily seen when seconds can make a difference in responding to an emergency.

Portage Public Safety has also issued a reminder to all area residents to ensure that emergency exits for homes and businesses are also cleared.
