Eric Copeland http://wemu.org en Hydrant Alert http://wemu.org/post/hydrant-alert <p>Snow is wet, and made of nothing more than frozen water. So, it may seem strange to consider it a fire hazard. But, it is. Because there has been so much snow, many of the road plows have been creating huge snow mounds that cover up fire hydrants.&nbsp;</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Some property owners also pile up around the hydrants in an effort to clear a path for their vehicles. </span>Ypsilanti<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Township Fire Chief Eric Copeland tells 89.1&nbsp;</span>WEMU News<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, that could delay the time in which the fire department can respond to a fire. If they can’t find the hydrant, they can’t fight the fire on your property. <strong>Chief Copeland asks, &nbsp;if you have a fire hydrant near your property, take a few minutes and shovel it out so it is both visible and accessible.</strong></span></p><p> Tue, 07 Jan 2014 15:26:51 +0000 David Fair 39912 at http://wemu.org Hydrant Alert Ypsilanti Township Voters to Decide Four Ballot Issues Tuesday http://wemu.org/post/ypsilanti-township-voters-decide-four-ballot-issues-today <p>Ypsilanti Township voters will find four millage issues on the ballot Tuesday - one renewal and three increases. &nbsp;</p><p>As WEMU's Bob Eccles reports, township officials say approval of the issues is critical to maintaining important services.</p><p> Mon, 05 Aug 2013 11:27:50 +0000 Bob Eccles 33136 at http://wemu.org
