Advantages of ILP?
-pumper in position for exterior streams
-equipment on pumper closer to fire
-lower engine pressures
-ecc is better position to observe operations & assist
Disadvantages of ILP?
-water supply limited to supply line layout & hydrant supply potential
-may not be possible to attain full pumper capacity
-possibility of blocking out aerial/TL
-if hydrant oos pumper may not be able to proceed to next hydrant
-possible damage to apparatus by falling debris
