A Fire Hydrant is typically used by the fire & rescue service to supplement the water carried within their fire appliances for fire fighting purposes.

BS 9990:2006 requires Hydrants to undergo an annual test and inspection and a 6 monthly inspection by a competent person to ensure the hydrant remains ready and in a working condition for fire services use.

The responsible person should make periodical inspections of all Hydrants on a weekly and or a monthly basis.
