Fire Hydrant Snow Removal

The Mukwonago Fire Department is requesting that residents and business owners keep fire hydrants on or adjacent to their property free from obstruction of snow during the winter season. If possible, a three-foot radius clearance would be appreciated. During a fire, seconds count, and firefighters can't afford to spend time gaining access to the hydrant.

 

Thank you for keeping our community safe!

 

Keep Natural Gas Meters, Vents Clear of Snow and Ice

When snowfall is heavy, remember to keep your furnace vents and natural gas meters clear of snow and ice.  Keeping furnace intake and exhaust vents clear of snow and ice is an important safety precaution to prevent build up of carbon monoxide inside homes and buildings. A blocked vent also can affect the performance of the furnace, which may not run properly or at all when the intake or exhaust vent is blocked.
