Building a Stronger Community from within


If a fire were to occur in your neighborhood, would the firefighters be able to find the fire hydrant near your home?

The Crown Point Fire Rescue is encouraging residents to "Adopt-A-Hydrant" near their home. Residents who adopt fire hydrants will help the Fire Department by keeping them clear of snow in the winter. 

Please make it a point to uncover your fire hydrant after each snowfall. Clear a path approximately 3 feet around the fire hydrant. This will allow firefighters enough room to attach hoses to the fire hydrant if the need should arise. Remember water is the main tool firefighters use to extinguish fires. Delays in locating and hooking up to the fire hydrant could hamper fire suppression and possibly raise the risk of injury and property damage. 

The "Adopt-A-Hydrant" program is a volunteer program and it is not necessary to advise the fire department of which fire hydrant you have adopted. 

On behalf of the Crown Point Fire Rescue, we thank you for helping keep the community safe.

 Please contact Crown Point Fire Rescue @ 219.662.3248 if you have any questions.
