    Running 4 engines all similar set-ups with:
    4 or 5 - 1 3/4" PC 200' long
    2 - 2 1/2" PC 200' long
    300' 3" dead lay
    1200 to 1400' - 5" supply
    Standpipe pack w/ 2 1/2" wye and 1 3/4 single jacket & 15/16 solid bore nozzle.

    Two of the 1 3/4" PC's are connected to a 2 1/2" wye, so that two FF's can shoulder load the stacks, disconnect the wye and reattach it at the end of a 2 1/2 leader or a 3" hand jacked from the dead lay bed.

    Two engines still have 200' of 1" booster.

    Engines are (oldest to newest) 79 Mack 1500, 94 Pierce 1750, 98 Sutphen 1500 & 2003 KME 1750.
    2008 KME Quint has 600' 5" - two 1 3/4" PC 200' and one 2 1/2" - 200' with 2,000 gpm Hale pump
