Hydrant Maintenance

Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One annually conducts a fire hydrant maintenance program for approximately 2000 fire hydrants on the Gig Harbor Peninsula.

This program includes checking the hydrant to ensure the caps remove freely, painting the barrel and bonnet, GPS locating, and ensuring access to the hydrant that complies with the International Fire Code.  This code requires:

7' height access to open hydrant

and

18" clear radius from the center of discharge cap

and

3' clear radius around the hydrant base
