Keep Fire Hydrants Clear

Shoveled Hydrant

There are 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 is time to clear your driveways and walks, the city encourages residents, businesses, youth groups and individuals to adopt a hydrant in the neighborhood and clear a three-foot area around the closest fire hydrant.

A fire engine carries enough water for about three minutes of firefighting. If a hydrant is buried by snow, it can be difficult to find and valuable time must be spent digging it out. When it comes to fighting fires, every second counts. In the time it takes firefighters to dig out a hydrant, a fire could double or triple in size.
