Adopt-a-hydrant allows citizens to claim responsibility for shoveling out a fire hydrant(s) in their neighborhood after a heavy snowfall. In the midst of winter snowstorms, buried hydrants can cause dangerous delays for fire fighters and having municipal employees check and clear hundreds of hydrants would be a timely, costly and burdensome process.
Adopt-a-Hydrant lets community members help. This map-based web app allows individuals, small businesses and community organizations to volunteer in shoveling out specific, “adopted” hydrants. Click on the link below or visit our website, www.mtlfd.org, to adopt a hydrant in your neighborhood.
