This class will focus on pumping water from a static water source, while incorporating components of NFPA 1002: Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications – Chapter 5. I will explain NFPA 1901 – Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus and how they apply to your apparatus. We will apply those standards and discuss how they enable pumping water to be achieved safely. We will review and discuss basic pump operation, electronic pressure governors, different priming mechanisms, principles and concepts of priming & pumping, and friction loss. This class will look at the many different pieces of equipment on the market that make pumping easier and discuss the pros and cons of such equipment.
