Adopt a Hydrant a

In the event of a fire emergency during the winter, could firefighters find the hydrant near your home?  Or does is get buried under a pile of snow?

In the event of a fire, firefighters have to locate and shovel out fire hydrants before hooking up to them.  Precious time is lost.  Please don’t let your neighborhood hydrant remain “undercover.”

We are asking that you help us keep the fire hydrant closest to your residence or business clear of snow.  We need a 3-foot clearance on all sides.  When shoveling snow, be aware of vehicle traffic. 

But shrubs, growth and trash can also bury fire hydrants.  Please keep this in mind when landscaping or performing property maintenance.

Fire hydrants are there for YOUR SAFETY and the SAFETY of FIREFIGHTERS!
