FIRE HYDRANT.ORG is the largest and fastest growing fire hydrant resource on the Web. Why not browse the site and find original hydrants like the rare Mellert hydrant shown here. It was "a basket case when discovered, brought back to life through the efforts of Ralph Bascelli and his community. Local businesses participated by donating their services". Living in Ireland, I walk pavements where most hydants are nestled underground. I believe the time has come to proudly display a purple fire hydrant prminently in front of my home. I'm eagerly watching Fire Hydrant.org in hopes of finding a well-preserved American fire hydrant painted metallic purple.
