emergency=fire_service_inlet can be used to tag a Fire Department Connection (FDC), also called a Building Hydrant Inlet or a Fire Service Inlet. See  Wikipedia. The fire brigade can connect a pressurized water source to these inlets to aid firefighting efforts. Common types of inlets include Dry Riser Inlets and Fire Sprinkler Inlets.


How to map

Add a node Node with emergency=fire_service_inlet. If you know the type of inlet, tag it with fire_mains=* and/or fire_sprinkler=*. See tables below.

Some inlet panels will have two connections, so it is possible to have fire_mains=* and fire_sprinkler=* on the same node. See example 5 below.

Type of inlet
Tag Description Image Taginfo
fire_mains=dry A Dry Riser Inlet ( Wikipedia) is a inlet to a network of pipes which are normally dry. The inlet splits into several pipes which lead to outlets on each level of the building. This avoids running hoses up the stairwell of tall buildings. In some countries this is considered an obsolete technology[1] and in other countries it is no longer allowed[2][3]. It is sometimes called a Dry Standpipe, although the term Standpipe has multiple meanings in firefighting. Dry-Riser.jpg
fire_mains=wet A Wet Riser Inlet or Charged Riser[4] is similar to a Dry Riser, except that the pipes are permanently filled with water from a tank in the building or the city's water mains. The inlet allows the fire brigade to pump water into the system to supplement the normal water supply.[5][6] Wet riser inlet.jpg
fire_mains=yes A unknown type of Riser Inlet
Tag Description Image Taginfo
fire_sprinkler=yes A Fire Sprinkler Inlet is an inlet into a  Fire sprinkler system. These systems are permanently connected to a tank with limited capacity. The fire brigade can pump water into this inlet to supplement the building's tank. Fire sprinkler inlet.jpg
fire_sprinkler=wet
fire_sprinkler=dry
fire_sprinkler=pre-action
A Fire Sprinkler Inlet where the specific type of system is known.
