    Default Fire Hydrant?

    See a picture of the only fire hydrant that I have been able to find in my neighborhood, Madre Vieja Norte San Cristobal.

    The chance of any water coming out of that seems pretty low.

    Doesn't matter. Chances of a fire truck responding in time to fight the fire and needing the water are even lower.

    Hmmm...I remember we used to have them in my hometown. Apparently back when Trujillo was in power they used to put them up when they built new roads. Now that you mention it I don't know if there are any left in my hometown...

    Good question to ask is why so few fire hydrants in the DR. Now that I think of it in the neighborhood in Santiago where my mom lives in I did not see any. Perhaps because of the materials used to make homes are fire retartant or something. I'm sure some members living on the island might have an answer.

    Ps link is hilarious.

    perhaps b/c there is no water to fill them with so they figure, why bother

    Why are there so few hydrants? The answer may be found in why there are so few fires.
