Hi Sheila (and others)How about a fire pond? I know that the schools that I have designed in rural areas have required fire ponds so that there would be adequate water supply for pumping. When they say equipment, do they mean big pumper trucks (big town expense!)? Could a pond AND possibly a pump (in adjacent pump house) substitute?

What has been the experience of other cohousing communities (in particular multi-family and very closely clustered) with issues like these? I've looked through the archives & found little on fire regulations & cohousing, & thought maybe some people on the list had personal experience they'd be willing to post (today, if possible, so we can use it in our discussions tonight). Thanks in advance.
