[ARCHIVED] WINTER STORM JONAS: ADOPT A FIRE HYDRANT

Please assist the local Fire Departments by adopting the fire hydrant closest to your home or business and keep it free of snow during the winter months.

Please keep it clear after each snowfall, and clear a path approximately 3 feet around the hydrant and shovel a path from the street to the hydrant. This will allow the Fire Department personnel to quickly locate the hydrants and obtain water for firefighting activities.

Please consider helping a neighbor with medical conditions or who are elderly, by adopting their hydrant as well. This simple act of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood.

During a fire, the Fire Department must quickly locate and gain a water supply from the closest hydrant. As time is of the essence when there is a fire, buried hydrants can cause dangerous delays for firefighter and all those involved. By keeping a hydrant clear from snow, you stand side-by-side with your local firefighter in protecting your neighbors and your family.

Any questions related to this program can be directed to the Union Fire Department at 908-851-5444.
