Indeed. When you or your neighbor's house is on fire, the last thing you want is firefighters being held up having to shovel around it or for them to be slowed down trying to drag and connect hoses through deep snow.

Same here, we do have some "dry hydrants" they call them sticking around lakes and rivers though but no forced water system.....yet.
God is good, all the time! Have you ask Jesus to be your personal Savior? Show love, receive love.

Same thing here. When we go to fight, we take our water with us. Our engine is a tanker/ pumper and hauls 2000 gals and our tanker brings 2500 gals. It at least holds us until we can set up a water shuttle operation. What gets really aggravating is when you have to pull out the entry team because the tankers are slow in getting there. I believe we should get hydrants al over the country.
Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.
