Be a Good Neighborhood: Shovel out a hydrant

Help out the BFD

With snow covering the ground in the neighborhood, the city is looking for good citizens to step up and shovel the hydrants in your neighborhood.

Currently the responsibility lies with the Boston Fire Department but it’s nice to be nice and to help out Boston’s bravest.  When volunteers pitch in, it helps uncover the hydrants more quickly and ultimately making the neighborhood safer!  There are over 13,000 hydrants in the City of Boston!

Another tip?  Clear away the catch basins too on your street!  

Reminder: Make sure the sidewalks are shoveled out in front of your home.  You could get a ticket if they are not!
