DISCLAIMER AND INFORMATION:
This map is produced and maintained by Chatham Fire Department. Chatham Fire Department performs yearly Hydrant Inspections to verify hydrant status and functionality. All discrepancies that are discovered are reported to the proper water utility to perform repairs. It is important to note that Chatham Fire Department does not have ownership of any hydrant and the status and repairs are ultimately performed at the discretion of the water utility.
Hydrants are color coded based off of the amount of water it can flow in Gallons Per Minute (GPM). Insurance Services Office (ISO) governs insurance ratings based off of numerous factors. In order for a property to receive credit for a hydrant, the property must be located within 1000 feet of a hydrant capable of flowing 250GPM or greater.

No hydrant? No problem!

Did you know? A single family house fire can take between 400-1000+ gallons per minute of water to extinguish.

Hydrants not only save you money on insurance, but give firefighters a sustainable water supply to save lives and property.

But what if I don’t have a hydrant readily available? The answer could be…
Dry Hydrants!

A dry hydrant is a pre-installed pipe that is submerged into a static water source and has a fire department connection on the other end. This allows for fire crews to draft from water sources such as lagoons, ponds, etc.
