BEND, OR -- Bend Fire and Rescue reminds everyone to take responsibility for their property, during the snowstorm. They’re asking for help keeping fire hydrants clear of snow, especially after plows come through. Also, keep a path clear from the hydrant to the road. Officials say firefighters lose precious time if they have to search for a hydrant during a fire.
They also ask for clear paths to and from the entrances of homes and businesses to help emergency responders ... and make sure snow is not piled up in front of emergency exits.
