“Fire hydrant rings can be an incredibly useful tool for firefighters. They can even make the difference between losing an entire house or just a room,” said Cole Paulson, Manager at MySafetySign. “Hydrant markers keep the community safe.”
Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
MySafetySign.com, a premier retailer of fire safety equipment, has released a new line of fire hydrant rings. These new markers are placed under a hydrant’s valve to indicate functionality problems and promote fire safety throughout communities.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)’s website, there were 1,331,500 fires in the United States in 2010, resulting in 3,120 deaths and $11.6 billion in property damage. Due to the potential for such extensive damage, nearly every municipality and business treats fire prevention as a primary concern.
MySafetySign’s hydrant rings are available in six colors, each of which indicates a specific issue with a hydrant’s ability to function, such as low water pressure. The new line also includes rings with printed messages, such as “Out of service” and “For fire department use only.” These messages, together with a ring’s color, are quick and easy ways for firefighters to discern that a hydrant isn’t working properly and identify issues with the hydrant. “Fire hydrant rings can be an incredibly useful tool for firefighters. They can even make the difference between losing an entire house or just a room,” said Cole Paulson, Manager at MySafetySign. “Hydrant markers keep the community safe.”
The heavy-duty plastic rings are placed underneath the hydrant’s valve to ensure that would-be vandals will be unable to remove the ring without completely dismantling the hydrant. The available reflectivity can assist firefighters in the darkness, since even a dim light will reveal a ring’s presence on a hydrant.
The new hydrant markers come in both 35mil plastic and 43mil reflective plastic, both of which are highly resistant to the elements. Due to the rings’ strong composition, these markers will last at least five years, even in more severe climates.
