Fire Chief Asks for Help in Keeping Fire Hydrants Clear of Snow

The current temperatures mean that piles of snow likely won’t be going away any time soon, and the Pella Fire Department is asking for a little help from the community if those snow piles continue to grow. Pella Fire Chief Doug Van Gorkom asks that residents volunteer to adopt a fire hydrant near their homes to keep clear of snow and ice in case of emergencies. A similar program is being put in place by the Knoxville Fire Department, with more information available in the near future.
