Adopt a fire hydrant near you!
When the snow falls, would firefighters be able to find the hydrant near your home? Make sure they can by becoming a "Hydrant Hero" and "adopting" a fire hydrant near your home!
At a minimum, residents who have hydrants nearby are asked to make sure the hydrant is cleared of snow enough to make it visible from the street. Even better is to clear the snow 3 feet around the hydrant so that firefighters can easily connect a hose.
Other Winter Safety reminders
Getting ready for winter doesn't always take a lot of work. Sometimes it’s just a few little things that can make the difference between safety and suffering: having a survival kit in your car, changing the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector, staying well-hydrated during outdoor fun.

Winter Parking Restrictions
With the start of the winter snow season, Woodbury residents and their guests need to be aware that the city's winter parking regulations once again are in effect.
To facilitate plowing, parking on city streets is banned between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. from Nov. 1 through April 1. City ordinance No. 1604 also prohibits on-street parking any time two or more inches of snow have accumulated, until after the street has been completely plowed. The two-inch guideline applies to any hour of the day, any time of the year.
