About the adopt a hydrant program
Winters are cold and snowy in Brooklyn Park. Firefighters need quick access to hydrants, which means they need to be clear of snow and ice. You can keep yourself, your house, and your neighbors safe by adopting a hydrant today.

Shovel five feet all the way around your hydrant after it snows three inches or more.
