    Default Recommendations on number of apparatus

    Is anyone familiar with or can provide a source for a recommendation on type and number of apparatus a city/town should have?

    I realize this is a complicated question. I thought ISO or NFPA might have some recommendations.

    Thanks

    You can try the Fire chiefs handbook, either 4th edition or 5th. I haven't looked at either recently but i do remember it being mentioned somewhere in one of them. Also try this:

    Hope this helps you out. Let me know how you make out. Been a while since I checked this out But am interested for my square mile of mixed everything but rural.
