More Snow Means More Adoptable Wellesley Hydrants
Are you adopting a Wellesley fire hydrant?
Another winter storm dumped several inches of snow on the ground, and may have buried some of the town's fire fydrants--which is where you come in.
Adopting a hydrant doesn't require feeding or walking, but a little shoveling. It also gives Department of Public Works and Fire Department some much-needed help. The Adopt a Fire Hydrant program was announced on the Town Website in February.
Adopting a hydrant is a three-step process:
- Check the Town's Adopt a Fire Hydrant! Map to find a hydrant near you that needs a loving home.
- Dig out your shovel, then dig out that hydrant.
- Fill out the online form to let the Town know you have done it. The form includes an option to upload a photo of you, your adopted hydrant, and the finished work.
According to the Selectmen, over 100 hydrants were adopted after the February storm. However, there are over 1,400 hydrants in the town.
