KY Fire Department Finds Hose Connectors Missing from Businesses

One Kentucky fire chief’s casual survey of some local businesses found a number of hose connectors missing, according to a news report.

The Richmond Register ( said that Richmond Fire Chief Buzzy Campbell was driving through the Richmond Centre retail complex Thursday when he noticed that six hose connectors had been removed from buildings.

Campell’s discovery spurred him to alert the fire marshal, Mark McFerron, whose further investigation found another six hose connectors were missing, including some attached to large retail occupancies.

The estimated value of the connectors is $1,200, but the lack of them during a structure fire at one of these buildings could substantially affect firefighting operations.
