Fit To Fight: UTGIS Fire Hydrant Maintenance Program Keeps Emergency Water Flowing

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Jan. 26, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Making sure fire hydrants will work and operate properly is the focus of Utility Testing and Geographic Information Systems' (UT/GIS, UTGIS) "Fit to Fight" preventative maintenance program.

"Many fire hydrants across country will not operate in the event of an emergency," said Mark Voigtsberger, President of UTGIS. "Yet in a majority of the cases, simple maintenance will fix the problem or could have prevented a malfunction in the first place."

Since January 1st 2016, at least six different stories have been reported in the media of fire departments responding to emergency calls, only to discover the closest hydrant to the scene would not work.  This does not include hydrants reported with frozen water from cold temperatures.

"The time to find out a hydrant has low water volume, or cannot deliver water at all, is not during an actual fire fighting emergency," added Voigtsberger. "Fit to Fight identifies these non-functional or poorly performing hydrants and produces an interactive map for emergency responders.  In addition, it creates a punch list for the local water department of locations needing advanced hydrant repairs or total replacement."

Fit to Fight has several maintenance levels depending on a client's needs, ranging from simple hydrant flushing/valve cycling to complete rebuilding.  All levels of maintenance include GIS mapping and electronic recording keeping of actions taken.

UTGIS- Providing contact voltage testing, water leak detection, hydrant maintenance/flushing, sign asset management services and GIS mapping, is Veteran owned and a member of the National Association of Veteran Owned Businesses.
