Adopt a fire hydrant

Together with the CFA, we're asking you to "adopt a hydrant" by ensuring the hydrant nearest your property is kept clear, visible and accessible at all times.

In the event of a fire it is essential that firefighters have quick and easy access to water from the nearest fire hydrant.

You can help by:

  • Clearing soil grass and shrubs from around the hydrant
  • Keeping vehicles clear of the hydrant
  • Reporting any visible faults, damage or missing markers.
