British Standard BS9990:2015 states that where a fire hydrant exists on your premises, arrangements should be in place by the owners or occupiers for annual maintenance. This ensures they will work in an emergency situation allowing the fire brigade to connect their hoses in the vicinity of the fire to access water more easily.
Fire hydrants, in Northern Ireland, should be inspected and tested once per year to ensure the water pressure and flow rate are adequate, the results should be recorded. The inspection also includes many other checks to ensure it will operate correctly
