HA NOI (VNS) — Another five hundred water hydrants for use by fire engines in public areas have been installed in the capital city, the city's Construction Department announced.
A representative of the department's urban infrastructure maintenance committee said that parks, public places and roadsides were selected to place water hydrants from where fire engines could draw water in case of emergencies.
The installation aimed to supplement the water sources for fire-fighting activities in the city.
According to the committee, putting these hydrant points to use during the dry weather at the year-end would help to resolve the problems of water-supply shortage at the source in densely-populated areas, commercial centres and markets. — VNS
