Mankato-Adopt a fire hydrant to keep it clear of snow to help firefighters respond to emergencies quickly and efficiently. Visible hydrants benefit everyone because every second counts when fire crews respond to a fire. To keep hydrants clear, shovel ice and snow in a three-foot radius around the hydrant.

In addition to helping firefighters, when hydrants are visible from the road, plow drivers can see them, which helps avoid repair costs.
