Fire Hydrant Markers Are Critical To First-responders In Saving Lives
A fire can rage out of control in a matter of seconds, every moment counts when locating a water source to put out the flames. Fire hydrants that are readily visible assist emergency crews in responding to, and remediating fires quickly. Unfortunately trees, shrubs, piled trash can also obscure hydrants from view at any time of year. In winter, snow and piles of snow from plows can easily obscure fire hydrants from view.
That is why the use of hi-visibility top mount fire hydrant markers are an invaluable tool in emergency situations where locating a hydrant quickly is imperative. The high-visibility reflective fiberglass rods help emergency crews quickly and easily identify the nearest water source and gain much needed time in getting a fire under control.
Please notify the Woodmere Fire, Rescue & Emergency Medical Service (216-292-4103 ext. 1234), if the top mount fire hydrant marker on the hydrant nearest your home has been removed.
