Adopt-a-Hydrant Program


Adopt-a-Hydrant Program and Contest for Winter 2021

The ADOPT-A-HYDRANT program encourages residents of the City of Corner Brook to help keep fire hydrants in the city clear of snow during the winter months.

Currently, the City of Corner Brook owns, operates and maintains 743 fire hydrants. After a major snowstorm it can take several days to clear hydrants so again this year the City is encouraging everyone to adopt a hydrant and help keep them clear.

During the winter fire hydrants can get buried under snow and are not immediately accessible during an emergency. In an emergency, firefighters have to locate and shovel out uncleared hydrants before hooking up; losing valuable time to control fires and save lives. But you can help!


The Contest begins on the week of January 4, 2021 and ends on Tuesday, March 31, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.


The program is open to all residents, businesses, families and community organizations in Corner Brook that want to ensure the safety of their neighbourhoods by volunteering to clear hydrants in order to help firefighters quickly find and use hydrants in an emergency.


  1. Adopt a hydrant by:
    • Filling out the digital form below. You can also print off this PDF and drop it off at City Hall. 
    • You can also email to
    • Call 709-637-1616 with any questions you may have. 
  2. Clear a 3 foot area around your adopted hydrant after each snowfall, or when it is heavily covered in snow and clear a path to the street from the hydrant.


Every week, firefighters will pick a region of the city and check out the hydrants! They’ll pick a winner and we’ll be in touch about the prizing, which will be a gift certificate from a business in Corner Brook.
