The Office of Neighborhood Safety (ONS) is beginning a strategic planning process, which they engaged a local firm (Aria Strategies) to lead.
They are hosting a series of Town Hall meetings in February to gather input and have also developed a survey (in both English and Spanish) that they are asking folks to complete to inform this process. Could you please forward my note and the attached fliers on to all the folks on your neighborhood contacts list?
Is there a fire hydrant near your home? Help the Rochester Fire Department by keeping it clear of ice and snow.
Adopt a hydrant by agreeing to do the items below. You even get to name your hydrant!
Clear a path from the hydrant to the street;
Clear a 3-foot perimeter around the hydrant;
Remove ice and snow.
Use our interactive map below, which shows available hydrants in green. Click the magnifying glass on the map and enter your address or street name in the search box to find the hydrant closest to you.
To adopt a hydrant, click on a green hydrant, complete the information in the form, and click the “x” to close the box and finish the adoption.
After you’ve submitted your adoption request, the hydrant icon will turn yellow while the request is processed. Once it’s approved, you’ll be notified by email and the hydrant icon will turn red.
