ADOPT A FIRE HYDRANT!

Adopt-A-Hydrant volunteers should clear snow away for the fire department to work. 

 In the event of a fire emergency during the winter, could firefighters find the hydrant near your home or business?

For more information regarding adopting a fire hydrant click here.

One more reminder:  Make sure your house numbers and the numbers on your mailbox haven't been covered by snow. Having your address readily visible helps fire, police or ambulance crews find your home more quickly in an emergency. Also, if you are a business owner and you have a sprinkler system in your business ensure that the fire department connection on the outside of the building is accessible and visible. If you have a fire in your building this connection is critical.
