While you may be concerned about getting your car out of the driveway and shoveling the walk so your neighbor doesn't slip and fall, don't forget about the fire hydrants.
In an emergency, when every second count, it's very important that the fire department has immediate access to hydrants.
Springs Fire Department Chief Ben Miller is asking for his community's help in clearing the hydrants of snow, but it's a good reminder no matter where you live.
Springs firefighters are planning on going out on Sunday at 1 p.m. to clear the fire hydrants and wells in their district. "Please lend us a hand and clear the snow away from any fire hydrant/well that may be in front of your home," he said.
He recommends clearing the hydrant to the road in front of it and at least 3 to 4 inches on each side.
So whether you live in East Hampton, Montauk, Amagansett, Sag Harbor, or Bridgehampton's fire district, clear the snow away from your hydrant or well.
Let us know if you've cleared your hydrant or well or if you've noticed others in your neighbor lending a hand too. Leave a comment below.
