Here is the group after clearing a path to the hydrant.
Three other firefighters – Scott Petry, Jim Way and Serina Blair – also helped with the snow-moving task. Petry is shown with back to camera in this photo.
Firefighters from other departments have also been shoveling snow from near hydrants. Residents are welcome to adopt a hydrant in their own neighborhoods to make sure hydrants are accessible in case of an emergency.
