Local fire departments are reminding all Capital Region residents to clear the snow surrounding fire hydrants near homes.

Shoveling the snow and ice several feet around fire hydrants can ensure a quick response in case of a fire.

Albany Fire Chief Robert Forezzi said firefighters regularly clear out the snow surrounding hydrants but encourage residents to clear out any hydrants near their homes. Residents may also call the fire department for assistance if they are unable to clear the hydrant themselves.
