Chris, If your department uses Storz connections for hydrant ‘hits’ then in order to maintain hydrants in operating use and ready for fire department use I think you should be able to utilize Part 6, or if you prefer, write an Inspection Order under Section 21 of the FPPA using 21 (1)(b) or (f) which seem to be the logical clauses to address the issue.

It would be interesting to know how your department pursues this case for future reference.

Good Luck!
