Adopt a Rockford fire hydrant

Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The winter weather can create challenges for first responders.

That is why local fire departments reminded people not to forget about fire hydrants. They asked for residents to adopt their closest hydrant, then to make sure and shovel a path around it whenever there is a substantial snowfall.

Clearing a three-foot path around the hydrant from the street can save much needed time for first responders in an emergency.
