The Villa Park Fire Department and Villa Park Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 2392 of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) are asking residents for their help in keeping the village’s fire hydrants clear of snow. In the event of an emergency, when every second counts, clear hydrants allow firefighters to quickly spot and secure a connection. Residents are asked to remove any snow and ice from the hydrant in their neighborhood. Additionally, clear a wide enough perimeter (about 3 feet) to be able to walk around the hydrant, and clear a path from the hydrant to the street. One photo shows the message board outside of Villa Park Fire Station 81 at 1440 S. Ardmore Ave. The other photos show village hydrants located near the station.
