It is easy to register for and maintain. Fire hydrants must be:
- Cleared of snow 3 feet to the left and right of the hydrant
- Cleared of snow to the street
This allows firefighters to quickly reach the water source and fight the fire. If a hydrant is not cleared, firefighters spend valuable time shoveling snow to be able to hook up their hose.
If you want to make a big difference with minimal effort, here’s two easy steps:
1. Register to adopt a hydrant in your area. Fill out a registration form online at FridleyMN.gov/hydrant or during business hours, call 763-572-3613.
2. Keep your hydrant clear each time it snows. If you are already clearing your sidewalk or driveway, make a quick trip over to your hydrant and clear that, too
