Hello all. I am a member of a volunteer fire department. I am finally getting around to attending "Introduction to Fire Department Pumpers" this weekend. Looking forward to it!
Need some help....one of my operators through a scenario at us the other night and I need some help. Im trying to calculate the amount of water moved in one of two ways. First: 5" LDH connected to a 4" discharge on the pump at 125 psi, with a 2000 gpm pump. The second scenario would be (3) 2 1/2", 25' long lengths of hose into a water appliance which siameses into a 5" discharge. Same engine pressure on each. How can I figure out the amount of water moving in each scenario.
So my Chief asks if I could take TP & Engine for pump test drafting.. Suuure no problem I'll take the day off. So he says ok Erick, testing is the 14th. Make sure to clear that day.... Clear the day I say? Yep, gonna take about 6 hours... (poker face).... Seriously?
So make sure before you jump to volunteer your services, you know what your getting into! But I did hear that a pump operator can learn a lot from these guys.
