Reminder Critical Fire Hydrant Testing Underway
Each year during the offseason, Nags Head Fire Rescue conducts critical fire hydrant testing to verify water flow that may be needed for fire protection. The testing is a requirement of the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Office of State Fire Marshal's Insurance Services Office (ISO) fire rating system.
All fire hydrants must be flow tested to determine the available water flow and pressures.
We are testing hydrants on South Virginia Dare Trail from Hollowell Street south to Gull Street on Friday, November 20, 2020 and Monday, November 23, 2020.
For the current location of the hydrant testing, visit nagsheadnc.gov/hydranttesting. If testing is currently underway, a news item with specific location information will be posted in the upper right hand corner of the web site. You can also monitor Nags Head Fire Rescue's Facebook page.
