With snow piling up, consider adopting a fire hydrant

As snowfall after snowfall is plowed off of our Minnesota streets, fire hydrants tend to get covered, which can be a big problem if the fire department needs access to one in a hurry. This PSA from the city of St. Paul encourages residents to help the firefighters out by adopting their nearest hydrant and making sure it is clear of snow. If you're convinced and want to make your adoption official (and you live in the Twin Cities), check out this tool from Open Twin Cities that allows you to commit to specific fire hydrants to care for.
