What are the possibilities and systems in place at this moment in regards home fire sprinklers in rural area's where it get's really cold but also where people have water cisterns instead of a well and running water?
Normally the residential systems are designed for life safety, get out,,,,
Not to save the structure.
Insulate the pipes, like you would do for domestic. Plus run them where they are less likely to freeze.
For water supply do a self contained unit::
great info, thank you!
There are several manufacturer's of self-contained stand alone water supplies for residential applications that are tested for -40F to 120F all that is needed is electric power. They were developed under a program sponsored by the FEMA/US Fire Administation. WS Darley is one of the manufacturers but I know there were at least four others. FEMA uses them for all their emergency housing (manufactured housing) for disaster relief operations. These systems are intended to provide that emergency escape time window.
thank you, great info
