Adopt a Hydrant

Arlington Heights residents can take an active role in helping to keep their community safe, by participating in the "Adopt-A-Fire Hydrant." This is a strictly voluntary program and involves no liabilities or actual responsibilities beyond the suggestions below. 

Volunteers interested in assisting the Fire Department can simply adopt a fire hydrant and perform the following tasks to help keep it clear in the event of an emergency: 

  • Maintain a 3-foot radius around the fire hydrant that is clear from snow and shrubbery. 
  • Watch for evidence of fire hydrant vandalism or removal of caps. 
  • Call Public Works at 847-368-5800 if you notice the hydrant leaking or observe other damage. 
You can adopt a hydrant on your own, or you can submit the Adopt-A-Hydrant Form, and an appreciation certificate will be issued to you and/or your group upon adopting a fire hydrant.
