LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) -- Lincoln Fire and Rescue is stressing the importance of clearing snow around fire hydrants.

With snow already on the ground, and more on the way, LFR is reminding Lincoln residents that hydrants are easily buried. This is especially the case when snow is plowed.

Clearing snow around a hydrant can add several minutes to fire operations in the event of a fire. As a precaution, LFR asks residents to clear the snow from around fire hydrants near their homes.
