The City of Manassas has 1,305 fire hydrants installed to provide fast access to water in the event of an emergency. Winter storms often hide fire hydrants under a mountain of snow, making hydrants impossible to find quickly. In the event of a fire, firefighters have to locate and shovel out buried fire hydrants before hooking up to them, losing precious time that could have been spent saving lives and containing a fire on the property. By adopting a fire hydrant, you are helping the Fire and Rescue Department - and your neighbors.
