ADOPT A HYDRANT
   
Saturday, January 23, 2016 
-
With the first winter storm beginning to hit our area we would like to ask all citizens of the Clayton Fire District to please help us by shoveling around a fire hydrant if one is by your house. With 1 to 2 feet of snow expected this will quickly cover any fire hydrants in our area and cause a large delay should we need to use a fire hydrant for an emergency. We ask that you please clear all snow within 3 feet of the hydrant and out to the curb. This will assist us in locating the fire hydrant and also save precious time should we need to use it. We thank you all in advance for your help.
