Health Safety Information relating to this chemical pesticide application will be made available at the Village Hall.

Fire Department Conducting Fire Hydrant Inspections

During the summer months you will notice members of the Hinsdale Fire Department inspecting fire hydrants through different sections of the Village. This inspecting process helps ensure that the nearly 900 fire hydrants in town are free and clear of any debris, not missing any parts, working properly and available for use if there is a fire emergency.

In the fall, the Fire Department and Department of Public Works will start flow testing fire hydrants, a process that will be broken down into phases. Phase one will include flow testing 25% of the nearly 900 fire hydrants. This proactive approach is part of an overall effort to better maintain the Village of Hinsdale's water system and is in compliance of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating criteria. Additional information about the flow testing process, will be available in the coming weeks.

If there is a fire hydrant in your parkway or near your property, the Fire Department urges residents to be diligent about helping maintain an open area of at least three feet around the fire hydrant. Please do not place anything that would restrict the visibility or access to the hydrant, such as garbage or recycling containers, yard waste, or planting flowers, trees or bushes. As always, we ask that you also follow Village ordinance by not parking in front of a fire hydrant by at least 25 feet in either direction.

Thank you for your cooperation. If there are any questions regarding this activity please feel free to contact the Hinsdale Fire Department at 630-789-7060.
