Having a reliable of supply of drinking water is always a critical need, but so is having large quantity of water readily available for another vital purpose: putting out fires.
And that’s why fire cisterns are so important, especially in rural areas where central piped water supplies may not be present. Plus, there is always the possibility that the regular water supply system may malfunction. Obviously, a backup water system needs to be in place.
That’s why many fire departments have installed a fire cistern in their area to guarantee enough accessible water in times of fire emergencies.
Buxton works with a number of area fire departments to ensure that these cisterns remain at proper capacity. It’s an important responsibility that we don’t take lightly.
Underground water tanks for cisterns range in size, but all of them provide a valuable asset to the fire department, as well as peace of mind for people who live nearby.
Many homeowners and businesses have also added fire retention ponds to their property. We have been tasked with the responsibility of maintaining proper water levels in these fire ponds just as we do for fire cisterns.
