This course is designed for firefighters who have experience operating fire pumps, someone who has attended IFSI’s Basic Pumps course, or someone wants to review of fire service hydraulics. In this course the student will learn nozzle pressures for handlines and master stream devices, friction loss for hose and appliances, and the influence of elevation on fire service hydraulics. Students will be taught how to calculate the proper pump discharge pressures for typical fireground situations. As time allows, students will utilize local fire apparatus and equipment to practice the skills learned during the course. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have a better understanding of fire service hydraulics.
