I am a firefighter/EMT in a small town in rural ME. We have no public water system and carry only 1500' of LDH, and as a result we rely almost exclusively on tanker shuttles. I am currently analyzing the water needs within our town in relation to the maximum achievable flow and proximity to dry hydrants/water sources. I recall seeing a chart somewhere (perhaps in Firehouse or Fire Engineering) that tabulated the max sustained flow via tanker shuttle in relation to distance from the hydrant, speed of the tankers, and gallonage of the tankers.
My question is does anyone know where this information is, or have this information?
