NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk Fire Department is asking residents to participate in Adopt-A-Hydrant program by adopting a fire hydrant close to home or business and keeping it free of snow during the winter.

In the event of a fire, every minute counts. It is important that the fire department gain access to a water supply via a fire hydrant as quickly as possible.

The Norwalk Fire Department is asking residents to shovel the area around their adopted fire hydrant after each snowfall. Clear a path approximately three feet around the hydrant as well a clear path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant so that the hydrant is visible and accessible.

Residents are also reminded to clear snow from a fire hydrant for neighbors who may have medical conditions, disabilities, or those who are elderly that may be unable to do so themselves.
