With the first major winter storm of 2018, the Norwalk Fire Department is asking residents, businesses and local community organizations to assist with clearing the more than 1,600 fire hydrants in the City.

In the event of a fire, it is vital that fire and rescue crews are able to quickly gain access to the water supply to extinguish the fire and prevent the loss of life and/or property.

The 'Adopt-a-hydrant' program is a simple one. Just pick a hydrant (or a few) on your property or in your neighborhood and shovel the area after each snowfall. Try to clear a three-foot path around the hydrant and a path from the street/roadway up to the hydrant. This will ensure the hydrant is visible and accessible to fire and rescue crews in an emergency.

This is an easy way to make Norwalk a safer community for everyone and all help is appreciated! We'd love to see your pictures. Share pics or selfies with your cleared fire hydrants on the Norwalk OEM facebook page.
