Yellow bags have been placed on the newly painted fire hydrants around the city. These bags help protect the hydrants from corrosion from salt applied on the streets during snow and ice events.
Bags will remain in place until spring hydrant flushing.
Fridley Fire has tested the speed of removal for these bag covers and have no problem or concerns with that aspect. The bigger challenge firefighters face with fire hydrants is snow cover, so help them out and Adopt-a-Hydrant today!
