Fire Department asks Tosans to shovel out hydrants

Feb. 1, 2011

Interim Wauwatosa Fire Chief Michael Anton is reminding Tosa residents to clear snow away from the fire hydrants in their neighborhoods.

During a fire, quick access to a hydrant can save firefighters time and make a big difference in extinguishing a blaze, he said.

At the conclusion of the storm, the Fire Department will inspect the city's hydrants.

Anyone who needs assistance removing snow from a hydrant can call the Fire Department at (414) 471-8490.
