This standard identifies a method of determining the minimum water supply necessary for structural fire-fighting purposes in areas where it has been determined that there is no water or inadequate water for fire fighting.
Criteria cover how to calculate minimum water supply requirements based on occupancy and construction classifications; water supply issues such as water use agreements, identifying water sources, and fire department connections; and dry hydrant design, location, and installation. Numerous annexes provide additional guidance on mobile water supply apparatus, large-diameter hose, portable pumps, municipal-type water systems, automatic sprinkler systems, and more.
