Dry Hydrants – Valuable Fire Protection
Fall and winter bring dry, withering vegetation and heightened risks for range fires. Protect your property with a dry hydrant. Insurance savings will help pay costs.
The success of rural firefighting hinges on sustained water supplies. If trucks must travel extended distances, delays mean the difference in extinguishing the blaze quickly or heavy damage. These highly valuable installations are pipes extended into deepest zones of your pond. In the event of a blaze, firefighters draft from a shoreline hydrant.
Plans can be researched at many forestry service websites. Or contact your insurance agent for recommendations. Local volunteer fire departments welcome such service. Ask them where you might view an existing dry hydrant in the area.
