Shovel Out Hydrants


 Spencer, IA (KICD) — With the recent snows in Spencer, fire hydrants have become buried.
  The Spencer Fire-Rescue Department is asking any citizens that are able to, to help dig out fire hydrants on their lots.  It’s asked that at least a three foot perimeter be cleaned away from the hydrant, and also a path to the roadways for threading a hose onto it if needed..
  Citizens are reminded that it is illegal in Spencer to place snow from driveways or sidewalks around a hydrant, or to park vehicles in front of them, or place items around them.
  The city of Spencer has 600 hydrants throughout the town, and while some of the hydrants have been cleared away, several remain buried in the snow.
