FIRE HYDRANT TESTING
ROANOKE RAPIDS FIRE DEPARTMENT
Public Service Announcement
Please Announce Until May 26, 2023
The Roanoke Rapids Fire Department will begin our annual hydrant testing on Monday, April 3, 2023. This process consists of taking pressure readings on each hydrant which allows the fire department to check performance. Testing also helps with locating valves that may be closed, which would restrict water flow for firefighting purposes.
Please check your tap water for discoloration before drinking, bathing or washing clothes. If your water is discolored, turn the cold water tap on until the water runs clear. We hope to finish the hydrant testing as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation, and if you have any questions, please contact the Roanoke Rapids Fire Department at 533-2880.
Fire Chief, Jason Patrick
Asst. Chief of Operations Richard Cook
