Sierra Vista council questions hydrant flow
SIERRA VISTA— The unique challenges the fire department faces when fighting fires in older parts of Sierra Vista, due to the age of its water systems, garnered the attention of the city council on Monday.
City Council Member Tom Crosby requested information about the fire flow capacity in city hydrants, which is a subject he said he found interesting when City Council Gwen Calhoun brought it up some months back. At Monday’s work session Fire Chief Randy Redmond and Fire Marshal Paul Cimino walked the council through the logistics of the situation, which sparked inquiries into what could be done to improve the flow capacity in older parts of the city.
