North Judson Utility Superintendent, Dan Anderson, reported to the North Judson Clerk’s Office that street crews have plowed 28 inches of snow. Citizens are asked to remove snow from around fire hydrants in case of an emergency. If the North Judson-Wayne Township Fire Department was called to a fire and the fire hydrant was covered with snow and not visible, firefighters would be delayed in putting out a fire.
In addition to removing snow from around fire hydrants, Indiana State Fire Marshal, Jim Greeson, asks citizens to make sure house numbers are clear and visible. Blowing snow can cover house numbers. This will ensure emergency response personnel can quickly identify your location in case of an emergency.
