Take A Minute. Take A Walk.

Go ahead. Put on your boots and take a quick walk to the other side of the street. Turn back to look at your house.

See the fond memories wafting up from its roof? Feel the warmth of all you've done there, all you've saved there, all you've shared there?

Now remember that it would take a fire fewer than ten minutes to take it all away and that a fire can double in size every minute. That means that in the five minutes it might take your local VFD to dig out the hydrant the fire will have grown by 32 times the size it might have been if you'd taken the time to help a neighbor do the job now.

For yourself and for your community...dig out the hydrants now.
