Adopt a Hydrant

The North Haven Fire Department is asking residents and community members to ‘adopt a hydrant’ this winter.

Residents and community members who ‘adopt’ a hydrant will be responsible for assuring that the hydrant is accessible by creating a 3-foot clearance around the entire hydrant from snow or other obstructions.

By adopting a hydrant, participants will be helping to protect themselves, their family, and their neighbors. When there is a fire, the fire department must quickly locate and establish a water supply from the closest fire hydrant. If the hydrant is buried, valuable minutes are lost. Most fire engines only carry enough water for the first two minutes of the fire attack, so establishing a water supply quickly is critical.

If you adopt a hydrant, fill out the form below. We thank you for your assistance!
