SYOSSET - After all the snow that has blanketed the island, firefighters are asking residents to help them out and uncover fire hydrants on their property that have been hidden by snow.

Firefighters at the Syosset Fire Department were going around trying to unbury the hydrants in their district, but if there is an emergency, they need the hydrants clear.

"We do have water on the trucks but that lasts only so long we need to secure a water source immediately," said Syosset Fire Chief John Capobianco.
