Fire Hydrants

Placement and spacing of fire hydrants in Clark County is in accordance with the Clark County Fire Code and NFPA guidelines and are as follows:

  • Fire hydrants are placed at all intersections.
  • In residential areas of one- and two-family dwellings, hydrants are spaced not to exceed 500 feet, or 600 feet if buildings are protected by approved automatic fire sprinkler systems.
  • In all commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential areas hydrants are spaced not to exceed 300 feet or 400 feet if buildings are protected by approved automatic fire sprinkler systems.
  • The minimum number of fire hydrants is determined based on the required fire flow. One hydrant is provided for every 1,500 G.P.M of fire flow.
  • Fire hydrants on adjacent properties are not considered unless fire apparatus access roads extend between properties and easements are established to prevent obstruction of such roads and a written contractual agreement exists.
  • When a street has a high degree of traffic volume, all hydrants being utilized to deliver fire flow to a development are located on the same side of the street as the development.
