Adopt- a - Hydrant

The Boalsburg Fire Company is asking for your partnership in our Hydrant Heroes Adopt-A-Hydrant program by adopting a fire hydrant close to your home or business and keeping it free of snow during the winter and free of weeds and shrubbery in the summer.

Fire HydrantIn the event of a fire it is imperative that the Fire Company gain access to a water supply via a fire hydrant as quickly as possible so that fire can be extinguished and prevent loss of property and/or life. You can help the Boalsburg Fire Company in this quest by adopting a hydrant and making sure that it is easily accessible throughout the year.

We ask that you shovel the area around your adopted fire hydrant after each snowfall. Clear a path approximately three feet around the hydrant as well a clear path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant so that the hydrant is visible and accessible. During the summer months it is also important to make sure that the same three foot path around your adopted hydrant is free of weeds, shrubbery, flowerbeds, etc.

Please consider clearing snow from a fire hydrant for your neighbors who may have medical conditions, disabilities, or those who are elderly that may be unable to do so themselves. This act of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood. Your participation in this program and maintenance of the area around your adopted hydrant saves time in the Fire Companies incident response, and time is very valuable. Doing so could help save property or even a life.

Families or Businesses may Adopt-A-Hydrant in there neighborhood. We will have a listing on this page to show the Hydrant location and who has chosen to maintain the Hydrant. This is a great way to serve your community and help keep your neighborhood safe. Anyone interested in Adopting a Hydrant may contact us at  info@boalsburgfire.com  to choose your hydrant location.

Thank You from the Boalsburg Fire Company
