When the county took over the volunteer stations they moved the tanker trucks to the other side of the county. So tanker trucks WEREN'T an option because they WEREN'T there. Hydrants may not be mandatory but last time I checked water damn sure is!
Let it be known that including Jimmy's house there was upwards of 100,000 gallons of water immediately available from swimming pools all within 2-3 houses of the Kadnar's. There are 2 ponds within 1500 feet. The county fire service has no portable pumps or operations for drafting from these type supplies. That is what Jimmy is upset about. Instead of looking at his comments as throwing blame, look at them as they're intended, to help FF's and the community. None of the solutions can be brought on if the problems aren't recognized. Jimmy could easily be sitting back saying poor me, but instead he is stepping up and trying to keep this from happening to another family in our county.
