Functions of a Fire Hose & Fire Hydrant
Fire hose reels are meant to supply a large, continuous, and controlled volume of water to firefighters in order to combat fires. With its lengthy water jet, the long hose allows the user to tackle flames in a variety of areas on site and from a safe distance. Service 1st Fire Protection, LLC supplies, installs, and maintains fire hoses.
Fire hydrants are erected on properties to allow the fire department to launch an initial attack to contain a fire, protect nearby property, and extinguish it. This equipment can also be used by properly trained individuals to extinguish flames. We also supply, install, and maintain fire hydrants.
How to Choose the Right Fire Hydrant
Many people are familiar with the parts of a fire hydrant that remain above ground, but fire hydrands extend several feet below ground, as well. There are two types of fire hydrants: wet and dry barrel hydrants, which have distinct structures and mechanisms. Wet barrel hydrants often used in the south, where they are less likely to freeze during a cold winter. Dry barrel hydrants are more popular in areas where freezing is more likely.
How to Use a Fire Hydrant
If you need to use a fire hydrant, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, locate the hydrant nearest to the fire. Then, open the hydrant by turning the knob or handle clockwise. Once the hydrant is open, attach the fire hose. To do this, unscrew the cap on the fire hydrant and screw on the coupling on the fire hose. Finally, turn on the water by pulling up the handle or lever. When you’re finished using the fire hose hydrant, be sure to close the hydrant by turning the knob or handle counterclockwise. Don’t forget to screw the cap back on!
Fire Hose and Hydrant Safety Inspection
All public fire hydrants must be examined on a regular basis, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) rules. Annual inspections are performed to ensure compliance with requirements and to ensure that all hydrants will function correctly in an emergency.
Vandalism, unintentional damage, wear and tear, mechanical malfunction, and even contractors working on water lines who forget to close hydrant tap valves can all have an impact on hydrant performance. We want to detect and solve any of these issues before the hydrant is needed.
As members of the NFPA, you can trust that Service 1st Fire Protection, LLC will keep your home and business safe in Phoenix, AZ.
