Ensuring that fire hydrants are accessible, operational, and able to deliver a sufficient water supply is essential. Periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance of hydrants can help to confirm that the water supply will be adequate, reliable, and unobstructed when it is needed for fire suppression operations.
This course is designed to review the basic practices of single hydrant inspection and testing to provide baseline condition, pressure, and volume readings, as well as hydrant maintenance. Please note: this program does not cover a full water system evaluation.
