The Mexico Public Safety Department is conducting an annual fire hose testing this week.
It started yesterday (Monday) and will run for the next 3 to 4 days.
Most of the testing is on site at Mexico Public Safety at 300 North Coal Street, however some of the testing of the bigger hoses that are up to 100 feet long will take place across the street in a parking lot.
Testing will include connecting the hoses to water lines to certain pressure to make sure there are no defects.
Mexico Public Safety has 2 fire trucks and one aerial truck with each truck holding about 2,000 feet worth of hose.
