Have you found yourself asking why the Fire Department releases water from all of the fire hydrants in town?

During the months of November and December, the FD “flows hydrants” to test the system and ensure that everything is functioning properly and producing the appropriate amount of water to control a structure fire. In addition, the Insurance Service Organization (ISO), who sets the fire protection rating for our community requires that all fire hydrants be flushed annually.

If you have questions about the process, the Fire Department is happy to help. Give them a call at 682.237.2947.
