Adopt a Fire Hydrant

The Edgewater Volunteer Fire Department asks residents and businesses who live near fire hydrants to please shovel them out after a snow storm and do not place snow on or around fire hydrants when shoveling. The first few minutes of any fire may mean life or death and locating a water source is crucial to protecting life and property. Make the fire departments job easier and help us help you by keeping fire hydrants free of snow and ice.
