HWU’s contractor has completed this year’s batch of hydrant painting. This multi-year long project is in its third year. This year they painted about 250, and this brings the three-year total to close to 700. There are about 450 hydrants left to be painted, and they will be painted in the upcoming years. You may notice that some hydrants are painted different colors. The colors are not just for viewing pleasure… they mean something. Fire Fighters are trained to recognize how much water a particular hydrant will provide by what color the hydrant is painted. Please see the picture associated with this posting as it explains the color codes. Another thing you may have noticed is that many of our hydrants have a color ring attached to the nozzle caps. As you might have guessed, those color rings also identify the flow rate of the hydrant. These rings are highly reflective and make it easier for the firefighters to spot the hydrants in the dark. Lastly, there were approximately 175 new Storz connectors installed on many hydrants. A Storz connector is a quick-connect device which allows the firefighter to connect the fire hose much more quickly, thus saving time, lives, and property. The Storz connectors are scattered all over town. ... See MoreSee Less
