Fire Hydrants in the City of Johannesburg not functioning

14 March 2014, 12:20

Andre Pieterse, Municipality Watchdog founder, issued the following statement: we would like to Request the COJ (City of Johannesburg) to ensure fire hydrants are clearly mark and are easy accessible for emergency  vehicles. Inspections must also be carried out on these hydrants to ensure they are in a good working condition; water pressure should also be tested on a regular basis. The Municipality Watchdog is calling for a full investigation into the state of fire hydrants in and around the COJ, the Municipality Watchdog also wants to know who is responsible for the testing and maintenance of these hydrants, as it raises a serious concern as this is a very serious issue.  Please report people vandalizing and steeling the steel caps protecting these fire hydrants. This is a criminal offence, and you can be punished for it. Reports can be made to the COJ Emergency Connect Call Centre on 011 375 5911 or via the COJ Connect Call Center on 011 375 5555 / 0860 562 874. We would also ask the residents of Krugersdorp to keep fire hydrants accessible and clear for emergency personal, and encourage residents with fire hydrants in front of their properties to report any problems to the municipality.
