A fire hose cabinet (FHC) is a cabinet that is used to store fire hose and related equipment. It is typically made of metal and is designed to be durable and weather resistant.
Fire hose cabinets are commonly found in commercial and industrial buildings, and are used to provide access to fire hose for use in the event of a fire. They are typically located near exits and fire alarms, and may be labeled with signage indicating their contents and their location.
Some fire hose cabinets are also equipped with an automatic fire suppression system, which is activated in the event of a fire to extinguish the fire quickly.
