If you would like, our firefighters will complete a home safety analysis at the same time and advise you of possible Fire or Fall hazards that are identified.

ADOPT A HOWARD FIRE HYDRANT

The Howard Fire Department recently launched an Adopt-A-Hydrant program. In an emergency, every second counts. Fire hydrants that are blocked, concealed, or difficult to access due to snow, ice or other obstructions can impede emergency fire response.

Fire engines carry a limited amount of water, so one of the first tasks upon arriving at a fire is to locate a water supply from the nearest hydrant. Keeping them clear can mean easier access to water and more time doing what really matters – fighting fire.adopt a hydrant Opens in new window

We need your help! By adopting a hydrant, your child can help the firefighters, homes in your neighborhood and the community. In the event of winter weather, you are encouraged to clear a three-foot area around the hydrant and ensure there is a path to the roadway, so the hydrant is visible and easily accessible.

Exercise caution when clearing around the hydrant. Be cautious of vehicle traffic nearby. Do not stand in the street and be careful not to slip and fall out into the roadway.  

How to adopt a hydrant:

To participate in the Adopt-A-Hydrant program, follow the link below and complete the form and hit the submit button.  After registering, a representative from the Howard Fire Rescue will be contacting you.  Each time the hydrant is cleared, you will be entered into a chance to win lunch with a firefighter at the station. Our Crews will be checking in on your hydrant that you have adopted.
