Dear Residents:

Blakely Hose Company No. 2 is asking for your partnership in our Adopt-A-Hydrant program by adopting a fire hydrant close to your home or business and keeping it free of snow during the winter and free of weeds and shrubbery in the summer.

In the event of a fire it is imperative that the Fire Department gain access to a water supply via a fire hydrant as quickly as possible so that fire can be extinguished and prevent loss of property and/or life. You can help the Blakely Hose Company No. 2 in this quest by adopting a hydrant and making sure that it is easily accessible throughout the year.

We ask that you shovel the area around your adopted fire hydrant after each snowfall. Clear a path approximately three feet around the hydrant as well a clear path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant so that the hydrant is visible and accessible. During the summer months it is also important to make sure that the same three foot path around your adopted hydrant is free of weeds, shrubbery, flowerbeds, etc.  Your responsibilities DO NOT include painting hydrants, altering or attempting to repair hydrants, or marking the curb or street around your hydrant.

It’s simple to participate in our new Adopt-A-Hydrant program!  Please download and print the registration form here and mail it to:

Adopt-A-Hydrant Program, Blakely Hose Co. No. 2, 315 Second Street, Blakely, Pa 18447, you may personally drop it off in a marked envelope at the station too.  Participants will receive an official certificate from Blakely Hose Co. No. 2 that is good for one year from your registration date.  When your certificate is about to expire we will mail you a renewal notice.  In addition to receiving your certificate, you will be recognized on our website: www.blakelyfire.org under ‘Adopt-A-Hydrant’, on our Facebook page /Blakely hose, on our Twitter account @blakelyfire22, and in our spring community newsletter Always Alert!
