Plymouth Fire Department Urges Residents to Adopt a Hydrant
The Plymouth Fire Department urges residents to adopt neighborhood fire hydrants and keep them clear of snow and ice.
After a snowfall, fire hydrants can become covered or buried, making them inaccessible to firefighters. Each year, the Plymouth Fire Department urges residents to pledge to shovel a 3-foot radius around hydrants after a snowfall, keep them clear of snow and ice through the winter and cut away grass and weeds during the summer.
The program helps eliminate the need for firefighters to dig a hydrant out of the snow and ice before it can be used in an emergency situation.
Firefighters will make random visits to adopted hydrants from January through March and award those residents with a prize, if the hydrants have been maintained.
More than 600 households have adopted fire hydrants in Plymouth. For more information or to adopt a hydrant, call 763-509-5120 or visit plymouthmn.gov/adoptahydrant.
