KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM) -- City officials in Kentwood and Zeeland are asking people to help firefighters by adopting a hydrant.

Fire crews go out daily to shovel out buried hydrants, but they're asking you to help uncover remaining buried hydrants. The city of Zeeland is making a similar request, with some hydrants covered with snow.

Readily accessible hydrants helps firefighters respond more quickly in case of an emergency.
