Yes, having the proper hose thread standard to the fire service is a must have item. I also keep a box of adaptors for the hydrant so that I can hook up anything from a garden hose to the 2" suction line for my fire pump. Every side of the house has a water spigot with garden hose attached so any spot fires can be sprayed down quickly.

But of course, the most important thing is to keep landscaping in the 100'+ zone around the house lean and green. I have no wood piles or combustible patio furniture near the house to act as a conduit for fire spread to the house.
