English: Fire hydrants in the UK are almost always underground, under a characteristic cast cover. When lifted a Standpipe may be attached. These are the same standpipes to which the public are directed if the public supply is interrupted. The location of hydrants are identified by characteristic cast-metal plaques, painted yellow. These have loose metal inserts to set up the distance to the hydrant, for identification purposes. Plastic plaques are also used.
