    I think data is provided in .zip format to download.

    Hi, is it possible to get a current version of the “Los Angeles County Fire Hydrant Layer”, that has multiple data sets like previously posted about? The one available now only has 2. Also is there a way to provide a kml version?

    Even if I can procure an older version with information about bolt type, amount, flange size, install date, type of hydrant, manufacturer, model and replacement would be very appreciated.

    Is the data no longer active?

    Thanks a lot for the data.

    My question is, I do see hydrants serving in our service area are coded with ‘COUNTY’. Can you please let me know why its like that?

    Do you differentiate only based on County & Private?



    The GIS Portal, GIS Data Disclaimer for the hydrant data describes the fields and there significance. However, the “test date” field is indicative of when the hydrant was last tested. The “install date” is when the hydrant was physically installed at the street sidewalk.

    The angle field is used to rotate the various hydrant symbols for display purposes.

    This is great data Tim, thanks!

    Two questions:
    1. What is the significance of the test and installation dates? I am seeing lots of entries from the years 1899 and 1970. Do those values have any meaning?
    2. Is the angle attribute indicative of the hydrants position relative to the street?
