You seem to be funny though. Capt. Moosie is the expert on this, but i have to take my shot. 2. You mean how far, Right? Answer-usually 150% or 1.5 times the height of the adjacent wall. 3. This is hilarious but i think a practical question. If your establishment is only as big as playhouse then use buckets of water to extinguish a fire. Joke only. Yes, definitely fdc is necessary this to anticipate shortage of fire water supply, make fire trucks as back up.
