Pump type and elevation

Does the NFPA mention whether one pump is sufficient for protection? is it required as per the NFPA to install a full set of pumps (Electrical, diesel backup and a jockey) for all cases ? what's the rule here ?


the second question is about the pump room elevation in respect to the firefighting water tank, is it required to be below, same level or above the water tank ? again what's the rule ?


can you please refer me to the NFPA reference that determines these points ?


Thank you
