People are only just realising what the “H” signs are for on lamp posts… and it’s blowing their minds | The Sun

HAVE you ever looked at the "H" sign on a lamp post and wondered what it means?

Well, some people have – with South Yorkshire's Fire and Rescue Service taking to TikTok to share the answer.


"POV: You’ve walked past these small yellow signs your whole life," they wrote over a clip showing one of the signs attached to a post.

"But it was today you realised, finally, after all these years, they are there to tell firefighters where the hydrants are."

People took to the comments section to weigh in on the revelation, with some insisting they've known for years, while others admitted they had no idea.

"I never knew. Everyday is a school day thank you," one wrote.
