These are some wonderful pictures from Montreal! On the appliance shown above where is the pump inlet eye? Could some of those lines be the feed from a hydrant?

Barry, I'm sending in another photo of this 5th Alarm fire, and it should answer your questions.This side of the apparatus though is the delivery side and shows 5 lines working.The other photo shows the ladder side of the apparatus(Engine 303)with the inlet connections.

Oh man, that is c-c-cold!

Note the jacket or tarp thrown over the leaking coupling by the Pump Panel, to keep the spraying water from icing everything up solid.

For Pavel; mid-engined, with the "Grannie Seat", facing backward, behind the driver.

Great photo of a sub-zero Fire Scene.
