What is fire hydrant?

It is a fire equipment that is used to extinguish fire. It is a pipe which allows water to flow out from a water main with the control of a valve in order to put out a fire. It is also known as fire plug.

How it works?

Fire hydrants are considered to be one of the most convenient and easily accessible fire equipments. They work in a very simple manner. Each of these equipments is connected with an underground pipe which carries large amount of water. When they are needed to use, a fire fighter use a five-sided wrench to open up one or more of the covers and connect hoses to the opening ends. Then, they use the same wrench to turn the 'stem nut'. Thus, water comes out through the pipe, through the openings, and into the hoses that lead to the fire engines.
