The City of Bowling Green is asking residents to "Adopt a Hydrant" near their home in the snowy weather.
The act can help firefighters called to put out a structure fire.
"It's very important if there's a structure fire," said Fire Chief Stephen Meredith Tuesday. Without an easily-available hydrant "we'd be limited to whatever water we'd carry in the trucks."
In a news release, residents are asked to keep hydrants near their homes clear of snow; an area of approximately three feet should be cleared.
"In an emergency, every second counts," the release noted.
Meredith also said that while they have not had any fire runs this week, the fire division will take precautions to protect firefighters from the cold.
