Adopt A Hydrant

This winter, the Stamford Fire Department is asking residents and businesses to “adopt” their neighborhood fire hydrant and assure that it is accessible by creating a 3 foot clearance on all sides of the hydrant from snow and other obstructions.


By adopting a hydrant, participants will be helping to protect themselves, their family, and their neighbors. When there is a fire, the fire department must quickly locate and establish a water supply from the closet fire hydrant. If the hydrant is buried, valuable minutes are lost. Most fire engines only carry enough water for the first two minutes of the fire attack, so establishing a water supply quickly is critical.

If you adopt a hydrant, we’d like to know and say thank you by publicly showing the names of all those who are contributing to the safety of their community. Please tell us your name (or your family name / business) and the location of the hydrant you have adopted, using the form below.

If you are unable to dig out a hydrant, but know where there is one that needs to be dug out, please call us at 203-977-5555. We’ll be happy to come and dig it out for you. You can also send us a message about buried hydrants by visiting our website at ““

Also, don’t forget… During the warmer seasons you should also cut back vegetation overgrowth by three feet in all directions.
