Rural Engine and Tender Operations : 8-16 Hours

Student Fee

Class specific

Course Description

This practical class brings students together with mutual aid association partners to provide water and adequate fire streams in areas where little water exists. Participants will learn the intricacies of tender (tanker) shuttles, relay-pumping operations, drafting, and other methods to provide sufficient water for fire attacks, whether offensive or defensive in nature. The class can be customized to improve Insurance Service Office rural water supply classification. Static water supplies such as lakes, streams, or swimming pools using floating strainers are options to supply multiple tenders, port-a-tanks and engines. Personnel will be comfortable in supply water “out of town” on completion of the class. Note: Engines and Tenders must be supplied locally.
