In an emergency, every second counts! Volunteer to adopt a hydrant, and keep it clear of snow for first responders.
Free your inner superhero status while helping to ensure your street is safer if a fire occurs. The North East Fire Department is encouraging capable residents to be neighborhood heroes by adopting a fire hydrant on their street or road, keeping it clear of snow and ice during the winter months, and also keeping it clear of grass and other debris year-round.
Firefighters continue to urge you to make sure that the nearest fire hydrant to your home is dug out three feet all around any time that it snows.
How to Adopt a Fire Hydrant
Residents that are interested in ‘adopting’ a hydrant can send an email to Borough Councilman Ryan McGregor at [email protected].
If you want to have a little fun while you’re clearing your hydrant and encourage others to do likewise, snap a selfie with your cleared hydrant and tag it #AdoptAHydrant in your social media post. Be sure to tag Fuller Hose Company #1 and Crescent Hose Company #2 on Facebook,@fullerhosecompany, and @crescenthosecompany.
