Where's the hydrant?
Tarrytown-SleepyHollowPatch - Clearing Hydrants A Smart Move for Residents
If you can't see your Fire Hydrant then neither will the Fire Department, please shovel it out if you can.
If your Fire Hydrant is not marked with a flexible hydrant marker (basically poles on springs) please contact the Village of Tarrytown and request one. If you or your neighbor are unable to shovel out your hydrant, or you believe it is unsafe to do so, then please contact the Fire Department.
Sometimes a white marking is used in the road, for example a Maltese Cross or a picture of a hydrant, whilst this is useful in helping to prevent vehicles parking in front of hydrants it cannot be seen in 1/2" of snow on the ground.
