Rural Fire Protection

The Greater Adirondack RC&D Council works in conjunction with local Soil and Water Conservation Districts and local rural fire departments to install dry hydrants for fire protection.

Dry hydrants allow rural fire departments to have ready access to high volumes of water for year-round fire protection. Dry hydrants may allow rural homeowners to lower their insurance premiums do to increased fire protection.

Contact the RC&D Office or your local Soil and Water Conservation District for assistance.
