DEP seeks a consultant to implement the HEAT program for the summer months of 2019 - 2020. During the summer months certain NYC neighborhoods experience a high incidence of illegally opened fire hydrants. Illegally opened hydrants pose risks to the community because not only do they lower water pressure needed for firefighting and household use but high pressure jets of water pose a danger to children. This problem is most severe in Manhattan Community Board 12 and Bronx Community Boards 4 and 5. In response to this problem, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP),in partnership with the Department of Youth and Community Developmentā€™s (DYCD) Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), developed a community-based education and outreach program called the Hydrant Education Action Team (HEAT). Under this program, outreach teams canvass communities in an effort to educate targeted neighborhoods about the dangers of
illegally opened hydrants. Outreach teams attend local street fairs, work with local business owners to display educational posters, and leverage the resources of community-based organizations to achieve this goal.
