    We use MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) in Wisconsin. The majority of counties in WI are part of the organization.

    I can send you examples of our Tender Strike Team cards. Send me an email at: dickeydo@charter.net

    Here's my county's Water Gender guideline.

    http://bcfirechiefs.org/Guidelines/tender_guideline.htm

    Most of my town is fully supported by hydrants but we have a few iffy areas.. We're more apt to lay down a 5" pipeline than a Tender shuttle. That's mainly due to available resources. All of our mutual aid have (multiple) Engines with 1000-1200' of LDH.. only a few have Tenders that we'd call on automatically.

    In general we default to Pipelines in town and Tenders on the two big Interstates in our local.
    If you care, here's the Pipeline guidelines: http://bcfirechiefs.org/Guidelines/pipelineguide.htm

It almost takes longer to make and break the connections.
    Reading over our guidelines I posted above, that's exactly what we do. Two sets of dual-3" lines off the fill engine so that we can be filling one tanker and connecting a second. If the draft site for the fill is off the roadway then it's LDH from there to a manifold to the quad 3's.

    Surprisingly enough the guideline does not specify adapter type, though I assume it's NST not twist-lock for everything but LDH.
