Fire Hydrant Block Plan
At Fire Central, we can provide professional fire hydrant block plans for commercial buildings and industrial sites. A fire hydrant block plan is a diagram or plan that provides essential information about the location and details of fire hydrants within a specific area, typically a building or a site. These plans are an important component of fire safety and emergency response planning.
Fire hydrant block plans are used by firefighters, building management, and emergency responders to quickly locate and access fire hydrants in the event of a fire or other emergencies. They are an essential part of any fire protection system.
We ensure that every aspect of your fire hydrant system fully complies with all Australian Standards and NCC guidelines.
There are a number of key components to any hydrant block plan that need to be taken into account.
Location of Fire Hydrants
The plan clearly indicates the precise locations of all fire hydrants within the designated area. This includes hydrants inside or outside a building, on the premises, or in proximity to the site.
Each hydrant needs to be labeled or numbered for easy identification. These labels or numbers correspond to identifiers used in other documents and during emergency operations.
Pipe Sizes and Connections
The plan should include information about the size and type of pipes connected to the hydrants to help firefighters to determine the water flow and pressure available from each hydrant.
Isolation valves control the flow of water to the hydrants, so it’s important that valve locations are indicated on the plan. This helps in case there's a need to shut off the water supply to a specific hydrant.
Access points or pathways to reach the hydrants should be marked on the plan. These include roads, driveways or pathways that should be kept clear and accessible at all times.
The source of water supply for the hydrants, such as water mains or on-site water tanks, should be indicated on the plan.
Flow Rates and Pressures
Information about the flow rates and pressures available at each hydrant can be useful for helping firefighters assess the capability of each hydrant.
