The town certainly hopes so.
In case what remains of the two-feet of snow that fell is not enough of a reminder of the Blizzard that landed in New England over the weekend, the town has one more:
With over 1,400 fire hydrants in town, the Department of Public Works and Fire Department are asking for a hand clearing the snow. The Adopt a Fire Hydrant program was announced on the Town Website a few days ago.
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.
In the announcement, Fire Chief Rick DeLorie and Director of Public Works Michael Pakstis add:
"Please be careful and aware of roadway traffic if you are able to assist with clearing a hydrant and thank you for volunteering to keep our neighborhoods safe!"
