There are multiple fire hydrants in my apartment complex. I just peeped out from my dining room window and saw three fire hydrants in front of the adjacent building. They are located just a few metres apart.
Not only that, these hydrants are checked, periodically, to ensure that they are working fine. In fact, we have had the fire service department come in, for exercise, where they used the water from the underground sump through the fire hydrant.
O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!
-Sir Walter Scott
Similarly, all hazardous red category industries should have fire hydrants and this should cover the whole area of the factory and there should be a dedicated water storage tank for this fire hydrant line. Then only they are giving permission for going ahead.
There are disaster management committees at the state level and district level and how effective they are is not known. This committee will work under the governance of the District Collector at the district level with an officer from the industries department as the convenor for this committee.
It's true that if a fire breaks at any place then fire brigade takes time to reach the place and if a fire hydrant is there then it helps.
