HydraTec Services offers auditing services to our customers to insure that the fire hydrants in the city are working properly when they are needed. Maintaining and checking your fire hydrants on a regular basis is essential. It is recommended that the hydrants in your system be checked and operated on a yearly basis, and keep records on the hydrants for five years to receive credit from ISO.
How many times have we heard the horror stories about fire hydrants not working for the fire department during an emergency? Lives and property were placed in jeopardy needlessly. By checking the fire hydrants regularly and keeping records this problem can be eliminated. It is a terrible mistake to assume that a fire hydrant will automatically work for the purpose in which it was installed without any maintenance. It is the city’s responsibility to oversee the condition of their fire hydrants for the sake of its citizens.
There are a number of things that should be checked:
Record keeping is the most important part of this job because you will be able to demonstrate that you have a program established to maintain a very valuable asset of your city. Establishing a regular maintenance program demonstrates to your citizens that you care about their welfare and you may be able to lower the fire insurance rating for the City.
