Odessa to Test Fire Hydrants in March

ODESSA - The Odessa Fire Department is doing its part to keep you safe.

They'll be testing fire hydrants around the city during March to make sure they're in "tip-top" shape.

Fire officials will have to flush them, check the flow and do some routine maintenance.

So keep your eyes peeled, the fire department says drivers should stop and wait until a flowing hydrant is closed or use an alternate route to avoid the running water.
