Cinnaminson Officials: Adopt a Hydrant

Keep it clean from snow.

 

The Cinnaminson Fire Department is urging residents to "adopt a fire hydrant."

By adopting a hydrant, you will help emergency workers in Cinnaminson to find hydrants easier in times of emergencies. Clearing it during snowstorms makes it more visible for the fire department and other emergency workers.

The fire department also urges residents to use off-street parking in snowstorms whenever possible. This allows for emergency vehicles to navigate better. It also allows the department of public works to plow efficiently.

Also, please don't shovel snow into the street.

Oh boy another scofflaw is coming....what else can we do for U, when the plows come by they put the snow in the driveway and make it worse to shovel.....floods, high taxes and now we have to keep the hydrants clean, sure glad I do not have one by me....

John, towns have asked thier residents to do this for years and years. You would not know this if you don't have a hydrant in front if your home. You obviously only know of it now because of this site that you seem to live on. It's not about demanding more of the residents. It's about being a responsible resident, neighbor, and human being. If you ever need the hydrant in a heavy snow storm, you too will be greatful that one of your neighbors cleared the snow away so the fire department can locate it easily and they do not have to waste valuable time during a fire digging it out.

@Mark, no I do not live on this site, there are alot of John's on here....we would have no problems with the snow if the public works department would not cover the Hydrants. A responsible resident, how about the flooding problem that occurs all the time, How about putting a flag on the Hydrant so they can be seen....oh well, thats life lets hope we do not get any more snow.....

I am still shocked at how many people continue to park their cars in the street after public works has requested time and time for people to move their cars OFF the street. The least we can do as residents is to help make the job of the plows easier, and clearing off a hydrant seems pretty common-sense to me. I do not have one near me, but if I did, I would have no problem clearing it off. Heaven forbid there is a house that is on fire, I would want the fire department to be able to find the hydrant quickly.

Well I guess people have a problem with that.....How many people have more than one car and its a scofflaw to park there cars on there property.....If you drive around this town U will see cars parked on there lawns, not on a driveway, so where do U want them to park, do not know that one...Do U....

During a snowstorm, I am sure the Township would make an exception to allow people to park on their lawns. I have seen some people who only have 2 cars with 1 in the driveway and 1 on the street. There is no excuse for that. The least people can do to assist the Township in keeping our streets plowed and safe is to move their cars. Most driveways will fit at least 2 cars,

We have a fire hydrant on our front lawn and did not need the Fire Deprtment to ask us to keep it cleared of snow or downed trees. It just makes sense that if a fire occurs in our neighborhood, we want the fire fighters to have immediate access.

Hey Pundit, have you ever tried to park your car in the garage, U do not have room for it...why do U think people convert the garage into living space...Just like the flooding at shoppes when it rains it goes downhill...

Tell that to the public works department, they give out summons for leaves and branches, let them clean up the snow....If I have a heart attack cleaning out the snow thats there fault right....are they going to pay my bills, no do not think so...have a great day,,,,,
