The Maplewood Utility Department does paint the fire hydrants in Maplewood. Hydrants in a particular area, usually 30 to 40 structures, are first sanded and primed. Then they are spray-painted either a safety-yellow or a combination of red and yellow.
The red/yellow hydrants have a Street Paul thread and are an indication to the Fire Department that an adapter is needed in order to attach a fire hose. The yellow hydrant has a universal thread and the fire hose can be attached directly to the hydrant.
