Bluff Park Fire Department

April 2008

 

Spring Painting Time for Hoover Fire Department
2008 BluffParkAl.org You may see the firemen from Station 5 in Bluff Park around your neighborhood giving the fire hydrants a fresh paint job.  Although you may want to have your favorite team colors on your hydrant (I asked for Miami Dolphins colors, but was politely shot down...), the color of the top of the hydrant actually means something.  The color tells the firefighters how much water pressure is put out by the particular hydrant.  This lets them know if it is sufficient for what they are encountering.  The firefighters are going throughout Bluff Park and testing the hydrants and then painting them according to how the test performed.  Here we see (L-R) Firefighter J.B. Smith, Lt. J.T. Purser and Firefighter J.R. McDonald giving a hydrant a fresh paint job.  They did ask that you do not landscape around the hydrants, as it makes them hard to find.
