Fire Hydrant Safety Message

Information for the Public

Release Date: December 10, 2018



The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay Volunteer Fire Department is asking for the assistance of the public to help keep Fire Hydrants Clear of Snow this winter.

Fire Chief Brad Butler says, “It’s a common practice to keep a hydrant clear of snow at a minimum of 3 feet around.” He further adds: “If you have a hydrant adjacent to your property it’s a good idea to make sure its clear from snow which will be a huge benefit if the hydrant is required for a fire at your own home or business. In a fire situation; every second counts.”
