The recent heavy snowfalls are certainly causing challenges keeping fire hydrants visible and quickly accessible in the event of an emergency. With thousands of fire hydrants throughout the Village and everyone running out of places to put snow, it is everyone’s responsibility to do our best to keep fire hydrants clear of snow. If you have children or there are neighborhood kids, please direct them to our Adopt-a-Hydrant page located here: Snow clearing contractors should avoid burying fire hydrants at all costs.

Thank you for your help with this important mission. During a fire, every second counts, and having to dig out a fire hydrant will waste precious minutes. We will continue to do our part between emergency runs spending time clearing hydrants throughout the community as well.
