Please note that the audio is not correct. 'Maße' should have a long 'a'.

I thought fuerwehr was "firefighter"?

A firefighter is a Feuerwehrmann.

If this sentence were in the middle of a paragraph, it might make more sense, like..."The city is planning on replacing all existing fire hydrants throughout the city. The new hydrants will be provided by a contractor, to specifications provided by the fire department. The fire department will define the measurements and features of the hydrants" or something like that.
