ADOPT-A-HYDRANT PROGRAM

The Terryville Fire Department is asking residents of the Town of Plymouth to become a participant in our Adopt-A-Hydrant Program.  By adopting a fire hydrant close to your home or business and keeping it free of snow during the winter months you are helping to maintain a safer community.  In the event of a fire, it is imperative that the fire department gain access to a water supply via a hydrant as quickly as possible so that fire can be extinguished and to prevent loss of property and/or life. You can help the Terryville Fire Department in this quest by adopting a fire hydrant and making sure that it is easily accessible during the winter months.  If a fire hydrant is buried by snow, it is difficult to find and valuable time must be spent digging it out.  It may take 4 to 6 or more minutes to dig out a fire hydrant buried by snow.  These extra minutes could truly make a difference between life and death.

We are asking that you shovel the area around your adopted fire hydrant after each snowfall.  Clear a path approximately three feet around the hydrant as well as a clear path from the street or roadway so that the hydrant is visible and accessible.  Please consider clearing snow from a fire hydrant for your neighbors who may have medical conditions, disabilities, or those who are elderly who may be unable to do so themselves.   This act of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood. 

Your participation in the Adopt-A-Hydrant Program saves time in the fire department incident response.  Remember time is valuable.  If you notice that a fire hydrant has been damaged, missing caps, leaking, or if it is blocked please notify the Terryville Fire Department by calling the Plymouth Fire Marshal’s office at 860-585-4012.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated participation in this Adopt-A-Fire Hydrant Program.

Have a safe winter season.

Captain Tony Orsini, Terryville Fire Department Health and Safety Officer
