Dorset Fire and Rescue Service has approximately 15,000 fire hydrants spread throughout the county. It is our responsibility to ensure that these hydrants are kept in a serviceable state and advise the Water Authorities of the positioning of any new hydrants.
Inspections are carried out at set intervals determined by risk assessment by our Fire Hydrant Technicians. They will repair or replace defective hydrants, pits or indicator posts. Major work is reported to the appropriate Water Authority for repair or replacement.
When a new development is planned Dorset Fire & Rescue Service determine the risk and recommend the number and position of fire hydrants required to the appropriate Water Authority.
If you have any concerns regarding fire hydrants please contact us below giving as accurate a location as is possible and details of your concern.
