Firefighter Training

Pulling from the Dump Tank

This section is for training firefighters to draft water from the lake and use the dump tank storage. Next we set up Engine 121 to pull from the dump tank.

  1. Prepare the suction pick upconnection.
  2. Place the pick up on the bottom of the dump tank.
  3. Tighten the suction connection to 121 intake.
  4. Prepare the pressure hose. We use two hoses to have continous flow.
  5. Connect hoses to 121.
  6. Connect the other end to the output hose adapter.
  7. Connect the pressure hose to the pressure nozel.

Now What?

Next we use Engine 121 to pump water from the tank to the fire.
