An armed fire hydrant, or RIA, is a firefighting device installed in certain establishments receiving the public and in many industrial establishments.
This is a first response device, to attack a nascent fire before its extension, pending the arrival of firefighters.
The RIAs of a public institution must be arranged so that their lances cover the entire surface of an establishment.
In premises presenting a significant risk of fire, the RIAs must be arranged in such a way that any point on the surface of the protected premises is covered by at least two jets in the diffused position.
