Summary

Firefighters aspiring to meet the professional qualifications for Vehicle Driver/Pump Operator will benefit from the second edition of Introduction to Fire Pump Operations. Thoroughly updated to the 2003 Edition of NFPA Standard 1002 Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications, it teaches readers to efficiently, effectively, and safely operate and maintain fire pumps. Topics are logically organized, beginning with an overview of the roles and responsibilities of the driver and operator, then stepping through the construction of pumps and operational procedures and progressing to the theory and principles behind water flow. Important water flow calculations are illustrated, followed by expanded information on automatic nozzles, standpipe operations, hydrant flows, and other topics that promote the safe and efficient operation of pumps.
