Fire Hydrants

Fire hydrants enable firefighters to tap into the municipal water supply to extinguish a fire. Although fire hydrants are usually maintained by the municipalities, there also exist many privately owned fire hydrants used in industrial sectors.

Often taken for granted…

What could be simpler? It's just one valve, you open it and that allows the water from the underground water system to go through a hose and then discharge from a nozzle to extinguish a fire. They've been around for at least 150 years and their basic design and operation have not changed much since. They are an important link in the chain to assure fires are extinguished when called upon.

Many hydrants in areas such as large shopping malls, manufacturing, warehouse and distribution facilities, as well as apartment complexes and so on are privately owned and need to be tested and maintained in good working condition according to recognized standards.

Insurance companies may also be concerned and require certain tests.

Basically owners should assure (1) their reliability – regular inspections, and (2) the rate at which water is available for fire suppression – flow tests.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link… and in the case of a fire hydrant, the consequences can be major if when needed the hydrant doesn't work.
