The Hays Fire Department will be inspecting and flow testing fire hydrants on Thursday in the area of Elm St. to Allen St. between 2nd St. and 11th St. and Main St. to Vine St. between 12th St. and 21st St.

This is part of a coordinated effort by the city of Hays to inspect all fire hydrants in the city and flush all water mains annually.

Inspecting fire hydrants ensures that the valves operate properly and that there is no damage or obstructions that will prevent or interfere with the prompt use of fire hydrants in an emergency. Firefighters are also checking the pressure and volume of water mains in each neighborhood for firefighting purposes.
