with the first significant snowfall approaching our area the Clayton Fire Company again reaches out to the public to help us so we can help you in the event of an emergency. We are asking anyone who lives close to a fire hydrant to help us by clearing snow away form the hydrant. By doing this you will help us in 1 locating the hydrants and 2 making it quicker for us to hook to the hydrant thus saving vital time. When clearing around the hydrant we ask that you clear approximately 3' all the way around the hydrant. This will give us plenty of room to do what we need to do. For those that take the time to help us we thank you for your support. Have a safe winter!!
