Big Fire Hook-up

training scenario created by Martin W. McMillan

Training Hours: 1.0

Description

Tower 1 and E4 operations utilizing a "big fire hook-up."

Steps

Order Step
1

Position aerial for base pump operations.

2

Aerial tower strips supply line off E4 and snubs wheel, allowing E4 to lay away to water source.

3

E4 positions itself for kink free deployment of front bumper LDH.

4

E4 starts supplying aerial tower with tank water and begins to hook up to hydrant.

5

Hook up 6" LDH to steamer connection and apply at least one additional gate valve.

6

With front intake drains in the open position, fully open the hydrant.

7

Move pneumatic valve to the open position, transferring water supply from tank water to hydrant water. You may then close intake drains.

8

Hook additional 4" line to gate valve and into side intake on E4. Open gate valve and ball intake valve to maximize pump capacity.

9

TIPS: Replenish E4 tank water early in anticipation of hydrant/water supply failure.
If immediate delivery of water is not necessary, open front intake pneumatic valve, then hydrant, before engaging pump.
