Course Description

Are you math-o-phobic? Can't make heads or tails out of hydraulic formulas or calculations? This course is for you! Spend some time and really learn how to do hydraulics, down and dirty, so you can do them in the field where it really counts! This program is designed to ease the fear and confusion so often accompanying the required hydraulics problems on today's fire ground. This classroom session takes the theory of pump operation and creates a practical application for firefighters to calculate simple formulas for proper fire apparatus pump pressures. Once completed, students will be capable of generating safe and effective fire streams for single pumper operations, as well as more complicated multi-unit, supply, relay, and fire attack operations.
