Keystone Valley suggests using decorated stick or broom handle to mark spot
For safety reasons, Chester County officials have urged residents to clear storm drains and fire hydrants of that nasty, heavy, white stuff. However, for numerous reasons – not the least of which is the never-ending snowfall and its ever-increasing weight – the Keystone Valley Fire Department is suggesting an option: If you can’t clear it, stick it.
Mindful that plows have unwittingly buried many hydrants, the department is suggesting that residents grab a broom handle or stick to mark the spot. And while you’re at it, have some family fun, decorate the markers, and send photos of either the cleared hydrants or the decorative markers to firstname.lastname@example.org. The images will be displayed on the department’s Facebook page or its web site: http://www.kvfd8.com.
