Keep the hydrants closed!

It should go without saying that fire hydrants exist so fire fighters can fight fires.   Not so, at least according to the recent release, Please leave fire hydrants alone from DC Water and FEMS.   Advice from the release:
Residents and visitors in the District can keep cool by staying in shade or air conditioning and drinking plenty of water. When the temperature or heat index reaches 95, residents are encouraged to take extra precautions against the heat. If they do not live in an air-conditioned building, they may take refuge at a District swimming pool, cooling center, recreation facility, senior center or other air-conditioned building. More information, and locations, can be found at dc.gov or by calling 311.
