The West Chester Fire Department has a standard sign used to identify a specific water supply connections to a building or system. Fire Department Connections are part of the building's sprinkler system allowing the Fire Department to connect the engine's hose to supplement the pressure of the sprinkler system when activated.
The signs are designed in a manner that makes it obvious to an approaching fire truck. It identifies the location of the connection, as well as who the connection belongs to. This ultimately saves time in the event of a fire.
