Please keep fire hydrants free of snow: Kamloops Fire Rescue

Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) is reminding folks who live near a fire hydrant to ensure it's not buried in snow. 

"We're asking people to keep a three-foot radius around the hydrant, so we can get in there and put on our large hose and use our tools," says Lyle Weninger, life safety educator for KFR.

"I think, for the most part, people are really good about clearing around the hydrants, but there are (some) where they do they get covered up. People don’t really think about it; they’re shovelling, they’re not looking where they’re stowing the snow necessarily," he adds. 

KFR is also reminding the public to be careful around the river and to avoid going on the ice.
