Adopt a Hydrant

Be a “Hydrant Hero” by clearing snow from hydrants closest to your home and be a good neighbor and clear snow from fire hydrants for family, friends, or neighbors who may have medical conditions, disabilities, or even the elderly who may be unable to do so themselves.  Such acts of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood!  Fire departments need a clear space out to the street in front of a hydrant, as well as space behind the hydrant for a firefighter to open the hydrant valve.  There are over 3,800 District fire hydrants, by clearing a three-foot radius around the hydrant and a clear path to the street, firefighters will have immediate access to water and emergency response will not be delayed.
