As you can see in this picture, the FDC is blocked and was difficult to see from the road. Add night conditions and an ill prepared fire company may have a difficult time finding this important fire suppression tool.
This could result in rapid fire growth while crews are trying to reach the main fire area, unaware that the connection isn’t being made and the system not being supported.
These important systems must be identified and kept maintained. Routine fire inspections will eliminate these hazards and return visits may be necessary. Stay safe and EGH.
