Reaction to KJAS report indicating untested fire hydrants in Jasper


An investigation by our Jasper media partner, KJAS Radio, is raising questions about fire hydrants in that city.

Documents acquired by KJAS indicate as of late June, fire hydrants hadn't been flow tested in the past five years.

In June, the Chinese Kitchen restaurant caught on fire. When firefighters arrived, they said they couldn't do their job.

The assistant fire chief wrote a letter to the mayor and city council explaining why, writing "the cap was stuck on the plug."
