    Default The MOST water during tanker shuttle

    What is the MOST water flow you've sustained during a tanker shuttle operation, say a minimum of 1.5 miles?

    Tell us what made it a success!!!

    billy:

    We have done sustained flows up to 1500 gpm with tanker shuttles over a distance of about 2 miles. The key is fillum quick, dumpum quick, tankers aren't moving water unless their wheels are turning.

    Pete, how'd you get a Class 9 rating with that kind of a shuttle ability?

    We shuttled 4000 gpm 5 miles for ISO.

    Where did you get we have a class 9 rating, in what twp, we service 5 townships and I think 2 have a class 9 rating, the others are higher than that, if fact the one twp we service we did the flow for the ISO to prove it could be done for the reduced rating. The twp's that have the class 9 rating we have no control over, we are just a first due mutual aid company. I'm not sure that several of them have not even made an effort to have their rating reduced.

    The ISO Rate Manual shows, and all the quarterly updates as well, The entire area surrounding you out to 8 counties all have ISO Class 9's beyond 1000 feet from a fire hydrant. 100% of all fire departments. In fact that applies statewide as well. So unless you can post some facts otherwise I stand on the Class 9. That is what the rural insurance policies are written on.

    First off ISO does ratings in our State by twp and city not by county, the boro of Carlisle is rated at a class 3 I believe and I also believe South Middleton Twp which we serve is rated a class 6. So what ever book you are looking at is wrong as I stated Pa is rated by Twp and City not by county.
    And I'm sure the all knowing and all seeing former 7thtower should know that.

    Hey Pres, drop by State Farm, Farmers, All State, etc, ask to look at their rating books, you'll see the listings are broken down by county with sub listings under that by township, city, etc.

    Most of the grades have a alash 9 after them with a "applies to property beyond 1000 feet of a fire hydrant" In fact, there aren't any grades listed that apply beyond 1000 feet from a fire hydrant in the entire state.

    Go to any insurance agent see for yourself.
