Will you Adopt a Wellesley Fire Hydrant?

DPW and Fire Department asking residents to clear fire hydrants, launch adopted hydrant map.


 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.

  1. Check the Town's Adopt a Fire Hydrant! Map to find a hydrant near you that needs a loving home. 
  2. Dig out your shovel, then dig out that hydrant.
  3. 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!"

See the full announcement on the town website.
