[ARCHIVED] ERFD/ERMU Host 'Hydrant Treasure Hunt'

Hydrant Treasure HuntThe Elk River Fire Department is teaming up with Elk River Municipal Utilities and inviting residents to join them tomorrow (Saturday, February 23) for a “Hydrant Treasure Hunt.” Record-breaking snowfall has resulted in many of the city’s 1,200 fire hydrants to become completely buried. In an emergency when every second is critical, hydrants need a three-foot clearance of snow and ice to allow firefighters to access them quickly. Residents can meet at Fire Station #1 (415 Jackson Avenue) at 10:00 a.m. where they’ll be supplied with a city-wide hydrant map and event organizers will assign crews to various areas of the city. A bobcat will also be on site to help clear hydrants that are unable to be located using just a shovel. Dress warm, bring a shovel, and join the hunt!
