 Adopt a Hydrant

Become a Hydrant Hero!

Adopt-A-Hydrant- click here!

Did you know, a fire can double in size every minute? It can take critical time for a firefighter to dig out a fire hydrant, which is why we are calling for your help! The City of Moorhead and the Moorhead Fire Department are looking for Hydrant Heroes to help keep our community fire hydrants clear of debris, ice, and snow! Take some time and adopt one of over 2,000 Moorhead hydrants and volunteer to keep it clear 3 feet and to the street this winter!
