Help Beacon Hose with our Adopt-a-Hydrant Contest

Update: Thanks for your support!

We need to clear fire hydrants around town after the latest snowstorm this week — you know, the one that was bigger than the fearsome blizzard — so we have started a new Adopt-a-Hydrant contest here in Beacon Falls.

If you have a fire hydrant near your property, we need you to help us out by clearing away the snow and ice (3 feet on all sides, including a path to the road). This could make all the difference in us being able to save life and property in case of a fire in your neighborhood. If you can do that for us, here’s how to enter the contest:

1) Clear the hydrant to our specifications (shown in the graphic).

2) Take a picture of your cleared hydrant and email it to Include your name, address and phone number.

Simple as that. And don’t wait! The deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 4, at 6 p.m.. We will hold a random drawing that evening, and five people who send us a picture of their cleared hydrant will win a gift certificate to the New Harvest Restaurant.

Once again, thanks to all residents for great cooperation and safety.
