Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 11 September 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
With reference to the States of Jersey Fire and Rescue service (SJFRS) I would like to request the following
Can all the fire appliances (trucks & Aerial platform) connect directly to hydrants
How many litres per minute can each appliance (Truck/Aerial platform) pump (is this directly from the hydrant or via a water tank?)
Yes, they can. We connect by using the Fire Hydrant and 65mm hose to the eye of the pump.
All front line pumps can deliver 3,000 litres at duty point, 10 Bars per minute.
