Ref. No. 0. 18/00066

It has been brought to the attention
of Government that a large number
of the fire hydrants in the City and
the suburbs are being tampered with
by the removal, either wilfully, or
ignorantly and mischievously of the
clip for fastening the instantaneous
coupling to which the hose is attached.

The effect of these wanton acts is
that in the event of an outbreak of fire
these hydrants will be inoperative and
useless and this in itself may result
in a calamity to the inhabitants of this.
island.

Government views these acts of
vandalism seriously and anyone
caught in the act of removing any of
these clips will be prosecuted.

The co-operation of the public is
invited in an effort to suppress and
eradicate this dangerous practice and
the Police or the Public Worka
Department will welcome any infor-
mation which may lead to the arrea,
and prosecution of the offenders.
