???? Do you know of a hydrant in your neighborhood that is buried? How long do you think it would take to get it dug out as needed or if your house was on fire would you rather not wait and find out?

???? I was the first person on the scene if a house fire today with a sad ending. The firefighters had to get help from neighbors to find the hydrant in the first place and then had to dig it out themselves. I don’t know if the ending would have been happier if the hydrant was accessible immediately but I I can’t help but wonder.


Here is a map of hydrants

If you know of a buried fire hydrant, call AWWU field services at 907.564.2762.
