    I don't doubt your knowledge but this was the plan for the college dorms only.
    Rooms were easily idetifiable. No doors to force as we have master keys. Windows were split vertically opened outward - only thing to force was a light screen and that could be pushed in. We did train on it several times, and found it to be a very viable option, almost as fast as lifting with a rope, and depending on manpower, a little quicker than a stairwell strectch. It was less tiring on the crew as they could ride up and not have to carry equipment. It was not our primary plan, but was a plan (if not required for a rescue or direct fire attack through a window) that could be used as it allowed for more equipment to be brought up with less effort.

    As far as aerials we had ours and 1st due mutual aid arriving there at about the same time. 3rd due (2nd due mutual aid) aerial would be arriving at most 3-4 minutes later if it was reported as a fire or updated as a fire (college security usually on-scene within 1 minute, so reliable updated info came very quickly) . 4th and 5th due aerials were the ones that were 10-12 minutes out if needed.

    Neighboring department also experimented with this on a few large apartment buildings with less success than in our dorm situation.

    Default high rise packs

    all these posts have some valid points, however there are some items that are missing such as friction loss in a high rise when calculating nozzle pressure. Nozzle tip pressure is just one aspect of figuring out what we need. E mail me off my site and we can talk...good luck
