1

When responding to an emergency the driver will do the following:

- Use headlights and beacon warning lights.
- Use audible warning device as applicable to the traffic and situation.
- Not exceed the speed limit.
- Come to a complete stop at all stop signs and signal lights showing red, and school buses while loading and unloading children, then proceed only if granted the right of way by other traffic or school bus driver.

2

When backing apparatus, except for unusual conditions at emergencies, the driver will have the assistance of at least ____ persons with one person at the rear of the vehicle on the driver’s side.

Two

3

Out of Service criteria

brake fluid

4

Air compressor must maintain

80 psi - 90 psi.

5

The D/O is to complete the Daily Apparatus Inspection Report no later than

0900

6

Immediately report to _______ any serious defects that are a safety problem or that meet out-of-service criteria.

their Supervisor

7

On a ____ basis during the morning apparatus check, the oncoming driver should review the MEB online reporting system to identify the status of previously reported defects.

Daily

8

Air compressor must build air pressure from _________ with engine at full rpm.

85 psi - 100 psi in 45 seconds

9

Transmission must be at an operating temperature of ______ during check.

180 degrees or higher

10

Connect to a hydrant.

Daily

11

Perform manual pump shift

Fridays

12

Perform draft test and backflush complete system

first Friday of each month.

13

Undercarriage of chassis is to be cleaned

Saturdays

14

Suppressions will be waxed

The first Tuesday of each quarter

15

The supplying apparatus will pump its booster tank water to the receiving pumper at no greater than

100 psi

16

If another pumper is pumping to the attack pumper from either a hydrant or a draft, this becomes a

Relay pumping operation

17

If water is being pumped from the booster tank prior to receiving a hydrant supply, a true static intake pressure is only available when ____ water is being flowed from the discharge(s).

No

18

Make note of the ______ end of the intake pressure fluctuations, as this will be the static pressure.

Upper

19

Static intake pressure is then utilized to calculate

Available water

20

Except for urgent/emergent conditions, residual intake pressures should not be taken below

20 psi

21

Tank Fill valve should be ______ to prevent constant discharge from the overfill pipe.

Closed

22

When receiving water from a hydrant supply, the Tank to Pump valve should remain _____.

Open

23

Should a supply fail, water from the booster tank will feed into the pump and the EPG in PRESSURE mode will automatically ________ to maintain the desired EDP.

Throttle up

24

During extended periods of little or no water discharge:

- Open your Tank Fill valve.
- Set up a discharge line to discharge water to a remote location.
- Throttle down to idle and shift into Neutral while leaving the pump engaged.
* Do not take truck out of pump and shut off ignition.

25

If the EPG is not working, the increase in EDP resulting from conducting a changeover must be manually resolved by

Slowly opening the intake while simultaneously throttling down the rpm’s to compensate for the pressure increase.

26

The D/O of an attack pumper must communicate the following points of information to their OIC:

- When the booster tank is down to ¼ and the water supply is delayed.
- When the water supply has been augmented.
- Any loss of supply or unresolved issues with the pump and/or water supply.
- That due to emergent conditions, a second line is being flowed from the tank.

27

Friction Loss equation

C x (Q/100)2 x (L/100)

28

Appliance and adaptor (wye, reducer, double male/female, etc.) friction loss in compensated for by adding ___ psi for flows exceeding ___ gpm.

10 psi
300 gpm

29

Distances greater than ___’ require the use of 3” hose and a reducer or gated wye. Add ___ psi/50’ of 3” hose utilized to the EDP listed.

400'
2 psi

30

All fire hose will be service tested annually during the month of _______. Each hose line will flow at ___ psi for ___ min.

January
200 psi
5 min
