Keep Fire Hydrants Clear

Hydrant cleared

With more than 2,150 fire hydrants in Roseville, keeping them accessible in winter can be a challenge. That is why the city is asking for residents’ help. Roseville has an informal “Adopt a Hydrant” program.

When the snow stops falling and it’s time to clear your driveway, Roseville firefighters encourage residents, businesses, youth groups and individuals to clear a three-foot area around the fire hydrant closest to your home or business.

A fire engine carries enough water for about three minutes of firefighting. If a hydrant is buried in the snow, it can be difficult to find, and valuable time must be spent digging it out. Every second counts when it comes to fighting fires. In the time it takes to dig out a hydrant, a fire could double or triple in size. By shoveling out the hydrants, you’re helping to save lives.
