The Milton Fire-Rescue Department is taking an active approach in ensuring the hydrants system provides a top-quality water supply for all of our fire calls.
As such, any hydrants needing repair are serviced in a timely manner.
The department services hydrants annually, including flushing, lubing, painting (as needed) and clearing overgrowth around the hydrant. If a city hydrant is found to be out of service or in disrepair, the Fulton County Water Authority is notified of the problem. They will schedule and repair the hydrant and inform us when it is repaired. In the case of a private hydrant, the owner will be notified of the problem. We will follow up with the hydrant owner to ensure proper fire coverage of the property.
During the time that a hydrant is out of service (O.O.S), an O.O.S tag is placed on it so fire personnel will know it is not available for use. We also notify fire personnel of all hydrants that are out of service in the city.
Capt. Andrew Kennedy coordinates the annual inspection of fire hydrants for the City of Milton. You can contact him through e-mail or call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 678.242.2541 with any questions regarding the fire hydrant program.
