In an emergency such as a fire you want to be able to escape from a building quickly and be assured that there’s plenty of water to fight the flames. I presume these capped pipes have something to do with that purpose?
And (off topic, I know…) – … so I hear you’re a Nigerian now, Donncha?
Yeah, they suck. They’re ripping off my blog, but I’m not going to go after them..
Oh, I edited the url above. Remove the ___ to see the site Niall linked to.

I believe those are standpipes. Rather than dragging a hose up flight after flight, tall buildings have empty pipes that the fire trucks can connect to.
