Fire hydrants become citizens’ Wells

There are more than 3000 fire hydrants in the streets of Changsha City. Since the beginning of summer, 126 villages and towns in Ningxiang, Liuyang, Wangcheng District, Changsha County, Kaifu District, Yuelu District, Tianxin District and high tech Zone have been hit by drought. Water has become the most precious resource in Changsha. However, in order to save the cost, some units and individuals have come up with the idea of fire hydrant

since July, the water supply company has received an average of more than 70 calls for repair of fire hydrants every day, but the actual leakage of fire hydrants is more than that, with about 10000 tons of tap water wasted every day. Because there is no law enforcement power, the water supply department can only dissuade the phenomenon of stealing water, but in return, it just ignores it, and the fire hydrant seems to be the flesh of Tang monk

every day, the Department of landscape architecture and environmental sanitation will turn on the fire hydrant to get water, and they often leave without tightening it. There is a well cover on the ground beside the fire hydrant, which is a special water intake and water meter for environmental sanitation and landscape architecture, but they basically don’t use it, because it’s free to get water from the fire hydrant. 1n addition, hotels and restaurants near fire hydrants are abusing fire hydrants to get water, and some residents turn fire hydrants into “Wells”

as early as 1999, Changsha promulgated the “Changsha public fire hydrant management measures”. Article 16 stipulates that fire hydrant is a special equipment for fire control, and it is not allowed to use fire hydrant for other water that has nothing to do with fire control. Anyone who opens or uses a fire hydrant without authorization shall be given a warning or be fined not less than 200 yuan but not more than 500 yuan< According to China's fire protection law, no unit or individual is allowed to damage or misappropriate, dismantle or stop using fire-fighting facilities and equipment without authorization. 1f the saboteur's behavior is only a kind of negligence, it will not constitute a crime. 1f it is intentional behavior, it may be regarded as a crime. According to the relevant provisions of the criminal law, it can constitute the crime of intentionally destroying public and private property; The degree of damage is relatively light and can be punished in accordance with the regulations on administrative penalties for public security China labor insurance net
