Adopt a Fire Hydrant
Monday, January 26, 2015 00:00
ADOPT A FIRE HYDRANT After dealing with the first major snow storm of the season, it reminded us that itís once again time to ask our residents for help. There is nothing more frustrating than responding to an emergency where we are delayed in starting fire suppression operations because we canít find a fire hydrant. Itís very common during a major snow storm for hydrants to be buried in snow either from street plowing or shoveling. Therefore, we would appreciate it if while youíre out shoveling and you have a hydrant on your property, you would take the time to clear the fire hydrant area so we have access to it from the street. Our delay in finding and clearing a hydrant could literally be the difference between life or death so we thank you in advance for your participation and assistance. If youíre willing to ďAdopt a HydrantĒ please send us the location of the hydrant along with your name and address. We will acknowledge your help with a Certificate of Appreciation. Any questions please let us know. Thank you.
