Months before the start of this year’s summer season, Ayala-led Manila Water said it will continue to install more fire hydrants in its concession area as part of its service continuity program.

Manila Water OIC for Corporate Strategic Affairs and Corporate Communications Head Jeric Sevilla Jr. said Manila Water currently operates 3,237 fire hydrants in its concession area as of the end of 2015.  Sevilla added that personnel have also been deployed to monitor and ensure that these fire hydrants are properly maintained and ready to be use in cases of fire, particularly during the summer season where temperatures are expected to be hotter.  Teams also ensure that the fire hydrants are not tampered nor used for unauthorized withdrawal of water.

Of the 3,237 fire hydrants installed, 918 are located in Quezon City, 349 in Makati, 396 in Pasig, 475 in San Juan and Mandaluyong, 361 in Taguig and Pateros and 258 in the province of Rizal.

Apart from the operation and maintenance of these facilities, Sevilla said Manila Water is also conducting a regular information campaign among barangays in the East Zone on how to use the fire hydrants during times of emergencies.
