Fire Hydrant Placement

Fire hydrants are an important aspect of fire protection for the buildings within the Grimes and Johnston jurisdictions. 

In both the cities of Grimes and Johnston, the code requires fire hydrants to be placed within 150 feet of a building and along an approved route. 

Buildings equipped with a fire sprinkler system are required to have a fire hydrant to be placed within 100 feet of an approved connection.

When fire hydrants and department connections are placed, designers should allow unobstructed access to hydrants and connections.
