Fire Departments Asking You To “Adopt A Hydrant”
With all the snow we’ve seen over the last month, there are many hazards – from slick intersections and sidewalks to snow piles you can’t see around.
But have you thought about fire hydrants? What would happen if firefighters couldn’t get to hydrants if there were a fire in your house?
Every fire department in West Michigan is asking – and urging – you to “Adopt A Hydrant” and make sure all hydrants near you are shoveled out and visible.
Please help us help you – clear out the fire hydrants in front of your home or place of business. The time spent during an emergency to locate a fire hydrant and make it accessible, will affect the outcome of the emergency.
