Fire Hydrant Scheme
The Operational Planning Team of the Kent Fire and Rescue Service is responsible for making sure there is water available for the fire engines. The main source of water is hydrants, with 29,500 in Kent. Hydrants are inspected on a 1-6 year phase depending on location. The Operational Planning Team are asking for local people to look out for hydrants that are overgrown, broken, leaking or in need of maintenance. They aim to service them within 21 days of being reported. The yellow H painted on the road will depict where hydrants are. Please report to Steven.Lewis@kent.fire-uk.org or call 01622 692121 x(6857)
