Keep Hydrants Clear of Snow
Shovel Around HydrantsShovel Three Feet Around Hydrants

Time spent shoveling around a hydrant during an emergency takes precious time away from firefighters battling a house or business fire. Even only a few minutes can make a big difference.

Burnsville’s firefighters need a three-foot area clear of snow and ice shoveled around each of the City’s fire hydrants, and a three-foot wide path leading to them from the street.

Residents are encouraged to “Adopt-A-Hydrant” or two in their neighborhoods, and make sure they are accessible after each snowfall. If a resident is physically unable to shovel a hydrant on their property, they are encouraged to ask a neighbor to help out.
