Adopt a Hydrant

During the winter, keeping fire hydrants clear of snow is a difficult. In October the Village began contracting with the Madison Fire Department (MFD) for fire protection services. MFD is still becoming familiar with the community including the fire hydrant locations. The Village is asking you and your neighbors to “adopt” the fire hydrant near your home and help clear the snow around it. A few minutes of time and effort after it snows can help ensure quick access to water when needed for firefighting.


Clear a path from the road to the fire hydrant and maintain a clear area of about three feet around it. The Public Works staff will continue to do their best to keep the Village fire hydrants clear but they could use your help. We’d like to thank those residents who have been shoveling out their area hydrants in the past.


Your efforts do not go unnoticed!
