, outlined a proposal that will soon be tabled to totally rehabilitate the existing fire hydrant system.“The system that I’m advocating…is to have underground pipes that will bring water directly from the Demerara River into these hydrants, so that at a moment’s notice, you can have water at all times- 24/7,” Minister Scott indicated.He added that whilst the installation of such a system, complete with booster stations at strategic points, will see significant sums being invested,NFL Jerseys From China
, such a system is needed to save property and lives.“When you look at the long-term effect, which is forever, and what will be saved in terms of no longer having those magnitude of fires and loss of lives, then you cannot put a price on that.”There have been questions overtime about the ownership of the largely non-functioning hydrants.Firefighters have been facing torrid times with many hydrants not functioning, forcing them to resort to trenches for a steady supply.According to Scott, currently there is a need to determine who has legal responsibility for the hydrants. The ownership issue will be discussed, and when the new system comes on stream, the new owners will be assigned.This proposal will soon be discussed with the Mayor and City Council,Cheap Jerseys From China
