Adopt - A - Hydrant

ADOPT - A - HYDRANT

Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District is asking for YOUR HELP to protect your home and neighborhood.

Join the Adopt - A - Hydrant program.

 
There are 761 hydrants in the TDFPD fire district that need to be shoveled and kept cleared each winter. 

Your water district and fire district urge you to get involved and join the effort by adopting a hydrant near you.

If you adopt, we ask that you keep your hydrant:

VISIBLE AND ACCESSIBLE

Shovel the area around the fire hydrant after each snowfall. Clear an area approximately three (3) feet around the hydrant as well as a path from the street or roadway. 

and

REPORT DAMAGE OR LEAKAGE

DO NOT repair, paint, personalize, or change the appearance of the hydrant in any way. Hydrant cap colors provide critical available water flow information to firefighters.

Please report any hydrant problems to TDFPD Fire Marshal Eric Guevin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
 
Did you know that a fire doubles in size every fifteen (15) seconds? This fact emphasizes the importance of the ability for emergency vehicles to gain easy access to a fire hydrant as quickly as possible. Lives and property are saved when water is applied quickly.
