Pump Ops Training

Updated: May 12, 2023

Not all of our district has the luxury of fire hydrants. Many times, in the case of a fire, water must be shuttled in by large tankers. In certain cases, firefighters can use a large body of water, as seen below. Tonight, firefighters practiced using a pond, 50ft from the roadway and down an embankment, to setup a water supply. This was a difficult task since the height and distance is beyond the normal limits of typical drafting. Pump operators learned how to think outside the box and successfully establish a water supply.
