About the program:
Residents are urged to adopt a hydrant before the winter season to help save time and lives. The program helps the fire department maintain over 2,000 fire hydrants in West Fargo.
Residents who adopt a hydrant commit to shoveling out hydrants following a winter storm, allowing crews to respond to fires more efficiently.
Residents who register via the online tool will be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card, awarded monthly. Clever, family-friendly hydrant names are encouraged.

- Be sure to take frequent breaks and avoid overexertion
