NFPA 1142: Standard on Water Supplies for Suburban and Rural Fire Fighting
SDO: NFPA: National Fire Protection Association
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This standard identifies a method of determining the minimum requirements for alternative water supplies for structural fire-fighting purposes in areas where the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) determines that adequate and reliable water supply systems for fire-fighting purposes do not otherwise exist.
An adequate and reliable municipal-type water supply is one that is sufficient every day of the year to control and extinguish anticipated fires in the municipality, particular building, or building group served by the water supply.
Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to assist the AHJ to establish the minimum water supply necessary for structural fire-fighting purposes in those areas where it has been determined that there is no water or inadequate water for fire fighting.
