  • Where’s Your Hydrant?

    Posted July 20, 2015 by Jenny Cutright
    After a wet spring, weeds have grown tall and could make it hard for firefighters to find fire hydrants during an emergency. Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District is asking residents to look for their nearest fire hydrant and remove any weeds around it so firefighters can easily gain access if needed. Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District suggests clearing at least three feet around the hydrant for easy access for firefighters. The simple act of cutting back weeds around a hydrant could make a difference.
