Adopt A Hydrant

The Golden Valley Fire Department seeks your help to keep the fire hydrants in your neighborhood clear of snow.

A six-foot clear space around the circumference of the hydrant will help reduce the time it takes firefighters to hook up hoses if a fire occurs in your neighborhood.

The best time to shovel out a hydrant is after the streets are plowed, before snow accumulates and freezes.
