How do I obtain a fire hydrant flow test for my project?

Builders and/or developers needing a fire hydrant flow test in order to design their project or upgrade their existing fire sprinkler system can schedule this test by calling the on-duty Battalion Chief at (847) 459-2664.  Flow tests need to be schedule a minimum of seventy-two (72) hours in advance and are subject to weather conditions.  Flow tests will only be completed if the outside temperature is thirty-five (35) degrees and rising, in order to avoid ice accumulating on the pavement.
