Please Shovel Around Fire Hydrants

Please Shovel Around Fire Hydrants

The Rochelle Fire Department and RMU Water Operators ask that you please shovel the snow piled on and around the fire hydrants in the parkways near your homes. Water Operators are cleaning around the hydrants that are located at the schools, hospital and nursing homes, but we need your help.

Snow covered hydrants could cause problems if the fire department needs to gain access due to a fire. The hydrants in Rochelle are painted red, but many are under cover due to the heavy amount of snow. Please take a little extra time to expose your fire hydrants in case of an emergency!
