Also kinda hard to just move out of Kommiefornica because the Bakersfield Fire Department is stuck there...for the time being.
One of the requirements of fire apparatus and especially fire engines, (pumpers) is that they must have sufficient fuel capacity to get to and from the emergency location...PLUS have enough fuel to pump water for a minimum of eight hours with refueling. (speeel chek goofy today)
Gets tuffer. Then the refueling must be able to be undergone at the emergency fire scene. I do not know how long it takes compressed natural gas (non very cold) to be pumped into sufficient fuel tankage to meet the above criteria? Plus, like already said, where on the apparatus do you mount the physical fuel tanks? What keeps the tanks from overheating from a close fire situation? Dunno. Thanks again. HB of CJ (old coot)
Natural gas...the wave of the future...get used to it...somehow.
