Winter brings a special concern to the Northampton DPW and Fire Department. Winter storms hide fire hydrants under a mountain of snow. In the event of a fire, firefighters lose precious time locating and shoveling out fire hydrants. Please don't let your neighborhood hydrant remain "undercover."
To help combat this issue, a program called Adopt-a-Hydrant has been created. It allows you to go online and “adopt” a hydrant near your home or business. By doing so, you agree to keep the hydrant free of snow. To adopt a hydrant, click on the "Adopt a Hydrant" link on the NFD website or visit http://tinyurl.com/hydrant-noho, create an account, and enter your address to discover hydrants near you. Click the hydrant that you would like to adopt – you can even give it a name – and you're done! Thanks!
