Help out the BFD
With snow covering the ground in Southie, the city is looking for good citizens to step up and shovel the hydrants in your neighborhood. The Adopt-a-Hydrant program helps to keep 13,000 hydrants across the city clear and free of snow.
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 out neighborhood safer.
How does it work?
- First go to the Adopt-a-Hydrant website
- Sign-up for a hydrant on your block (you can even name your hydrant)
- You will be matched up with hydrant that you will shovel out when it snows
Simple,right? So volunteer and help keep Southie a little safer. Send us your pictures of doing a good deed too!
