Fire Hydrant Markers

Our fire hydrant markers are made in the USA using high-grade 60″ long, 3/8″ diameter fiberglass rod  with built-in UV protection. Our unique polymer brackets and spring caps are molded from strong, corrosion-resistant polymer. The spring caps eliminate the use of fillers and adhesives required by other manufacturers.

We also use heavy duty stainless steel springs and the best reflective tape on the market. The fire hydrant marker rod is highly visible and ensures that emergency crews can quickly locate fire hydrants at night or after a snow storm.

We offer both Top Mount and Side Mount fire hydrant markers. Our unique side mount bracket is rust-proof, vandal-resistant and won’t rotate, so the rod stays upright.  The bracket won’t interfere with removal of the housing.


About our fire hydrant markers

5' long fiberglass rod fire hydrant markerCY Plastics was one of the original developers of new, high-visibility fire hydrant markers being used around the country. These five foot long fiberglass rods with reflective bands help fire fighters locate hydrants buried under snow in winter. They help fire crews quickly spot hydrants in the dark, in any weather, at any time of year.

Traditional fire hydrant markers were simply painted wooden stakes attached to the hydrant so they could be located in deep snow. These wooden markers had no reflective qualities and could be difficult to spot after dark. They had to be removed at the end of the snow season, stored and re-installed the following year.

Encouraged by a third-generation fire fighter, CY Plastics (CY Safety Products) developed a better solution.
