Firefighters ask for help in clearing hydrants

GLADSTONE–  The Gladstone Volunteer Firefighters are asking the public to help in clearing ice and snow around fire hydrants.

The firefighters need to access the hydrants in case of a fire, and ice and snow hinders their ability to do so.

They urge residents to keep snow and ice at least 3 feet away from the hydrant nearest to their residence.

For any questions or concerns, contact the Gladstone Public Safety Department at 428-3131.
