MOUNTAIN LAKES – Winter storms bring heavy snow making it hard to almost impossible to quickly identify and use fire hydrants in an emergency.

National Studies show that important minutes are lost when firefighters need to shovel out a hydrant for water supply to fight fires. Firefighters can waste up to ten minutes finding and accessing an obstructed hydrant, once they arrive on scene.

The Volunteer men and women of the Mountain Lakes Fire Department, your neighbors, do their best to clear hydrants in town. However, with over 230 hydrants it takes days to finish the task.

Mountain Lakes Fire Department is asking the residents and businesses to help keep hydrants clear in order to provide the emergency services everyone wants.

Responsibilities of adopting a hydrant

Keep 3-foot clearance on all sides of the hydrant
Report damaged hydrants
Keep free of brush and leaf piles

You Can Adopt a Hydrant by clicking here or by clicking here.
