It took two firefighters scooping quickly about one minute to remove snow from a hydrant.

That one minute could make a difference between life and death.

They also said that fiberglass hydrant location markers might be broken and could result in extra time to find the hydrant in an emergency.

SFFR recommends clearing a three-foot diameter around your hydrant.
