Dry Fire Hydrant Design 09 - Bridge-mount DFH in Use

By President Mark Davis
June 22, 2017

In May 2016 we installed a few of our deployable, bridge-mounted dry fire hydrants in Strafford, New Hampshire (See May 2016 News Story). The installations all used our swiveling standpipe concept outfitted with a teardrop-style suction strainer. The folks at the Strafford FD acquired a 4.5-ft section of 6-inch suction hose to use with these dry fire hydrant installations. The use of the short length of suction hose allows the pumper to get close to the suction head and thus minimize obstruction of the roadway.

The short length of 6-inch suction hose works great!  The pumper has easy access to the DFH and can keep a lane of traffic open at the same time.
