Reminder to help clear fire hydrants

The Town of Simsbury and Simsbury Fire District would like to remind homeowners and local businesses to make sure they keep areas surrounding fire hydrants clear so that firefighters can connect their equipment without delays.  With the recent storms, it is vital that hydrants throughout the Town remain accessible and remind residents and business owners to keep in mind that fire hydrant accessibility is a primary factor in fighting fires and protecting lives and property in the event of a fire.
