Person shoveling snow to uncover a fire hydrant

Buried or hidden hydrants cause dangerous delays for firefighters. Adopt-a-hydrant allows residents, businesses or organizations to claim responsibility for shoveling out fire hydrants after heavy snowfall and making sure the hydrants are clear of brush, foliage or anything that may hide them from view.

Keep a Hydrant Clear

  • Shovel a 3-foot radius around the hydrant and clear a path to the street.
  • Make sure it is visible from the street.
  • Remove any plants or debris within a 3-foot radius.

Edina has over 1,800 fire hydrants to keep clear. Call or email today to adopt a hydrant or two near you!
