The Prince William County Department of Fire & Rescue in conjunction with Prince William County Home Depot stores are soliciting community assistance during our Adopt-A-Hydrant program during the months of December through March.  This program will enable residents and/or businesses to adopt a fire hydrant close to their home or business and maintain the area around the hydrant keeping it free of snow during the winter and free of weeds and shrubbery in the summer.

Upon registering, residents will receive an “Adoption Certificate”.  This certificate can be redeemed at any of the PWC Home Depot Service Desks for a FREE Hydrant SNOW STICK to mark their adopted fire hydrant.  Once they have received the snow stick, they place it near the adopted hydrant and wait for the snow to fall.  To register, click on the application at the bottom of the page.  Send the completed application to  The application form is at the end of the newsletter or you can click here and it will take you to the on-line version.

If you have adopted a fire hydrant, please take a picture and send it to my office with your name and address.  When we get the all clear that winter is over, I will draw one lucky person for the Potomac District 2017-2018 Reliant Hydrant Award.
