NFPA 1410 Evolution 3: Two Engines, Two Hydrants

training scenario created by IncidentSmart

Description

In this evolution two companies will secure two different water sources, the first engine will advance and attack line, the second engine will advance a backup line. The recommended completion time is 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

1. Stage Away from Fire Scene

Begin by staging both engines away from the fire scene and the hydrants.

2. Wrap the hydrant

The first engine will proceed to the hydrant. Time begins when the engine stops at the first hydrant. A firefighter will exit the engine. Remove supply line from the engine and wrap the hydrant. Once the supply line is secure the firefighter will signal for the engine to proceed to the fire scene. This firefighter will then connect the supply lines to the hydrant and be prepared to send water to the engine.

3. First engine to fire scene

The engine will proceed to the fire scene laying at least 300' of supply lines. The engine will be placed into pump. The driver will connect the supply lines to the engine's intakes and will then signal for the firefighter at the hydrant to send water. Two firefighters will also advance an attack line 150' and begin flowing at least 100 GPM of water. The driver can supply this line off of tank water. After a 30 second delay the second engine can proceed to their hydrant.

4. Second Engine Wrap the hydrant

The second engine will proceed to their hydrant after a 30 second delay. A firefighter will exit the engine. Remove supply line from the engine and wrap the hydrant. Once the supply line is secure the firefighter will signal for the engine to proceed to the fire scene. This firefighter will then connect the supply lines to the hydrant and be prepared to send water to the engine.

5. Deploy backup line

The second engine will proceed to the fire scene laying at least 300' of supply lines. The engine will be placed into pump. The driver will connect the supply lines to the engine's intakes and will then signal for the firefighter at the hydrant to send water. Two firefighters will also advance a backup line 150' and begin flowing at least 200 GPM of water. This line can only be charged after a water supply has been established. The scenario is complete when both engines are flowing at the proper rate and pressure.
