Adopt a Hydrant 12 Feb 14

Hutchinson City Councilor and Firefighter Gary Forcier took the opportunity at last night’s city council meeting to ask residents to clear the snow away from fire hydrants in their neighborhoods.

Forcier says if you could “adopt a hydrant” and clear the snow, it makes accessing the hydrants easier, and in turn faster, so firefighters can put out fires quicker

Forcier says a snowblowers width on each side of the hydrant will suffice.
