Adopt a Fire Hydrant Program
This afternoon, the daylight crew spent a few hours in the first due area checking and clearing fire hydrants after the snow event. The crew has checked over 100 fire hydrants with about 50% of them cleared by local residents before our arrival but if a hydrant was found to be not cleared the crews made sure it was available at a moments notice to fire crews.
Please, you have a hydrant near your home, clear it. It might not be your home that has an emergency but your next door neighbor or a neighbor up the street might need the precious seconds.
We ask for three feet of clearance around a fire hydrant and access from the street to the hydrant. If the crews found a fire hydrant not cleared, it only took an average of two minutes to clear the hydrant from the snow.
Neighbors helping neighbors. Please, adopt a fire hydrant.
A SNOW CLEARED FIRE HYDRANT IS A HAPPY FIRE HYDRANT.
