With all of the snow we've received so far in 2015, keeping the neighborhood fire hydrants clear is certainly a priority. Most of us know that if not cleared out, snow can easily turn into ice, creating an unnecessary and dangerous challenge to the fire department if they needed to use the fire hydrant. Neighbors should all take part in ensuring their hydrant stays clear: it's never just "one person's job."
If you're ever having trouble clearing out the snow/ice around your fire hydrant in Woburn, contact Woburn Fire Department at their Administrative Office: 781-897-1380. See their website here.
Most fire hydrants have an antenna on them to let the Fire Department see where hydrants are if covered by deep snow, and to let plows know not to pile snow on them. If your fire hydrant does not have one of these, you should contact the Woburn Department of Public Works: 781-897-5992. See their website here.
Fire hydrants are routinely inspected (flushed), usually biannually. If you believe your fire hydrant needs to be inspected, contact the Woburn Water Department at 781-897-5940. See their website here.
