primary or secondary water supplies for fire protection

Fire protection tanks can store either primary or secondary water supplies for fire protection. Municipalities & developers often install fire protection water tanks when developments are far from municipal water sources. The tanks are an ideal solution for sites that don’t have sufficient water volume or pressure for fire protection needs. The tanks can also provide water for a building’s sprinkler system or give trucks quick, easy access to water for dry-hydrant connections.
