Firefighter Training

Pumping 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 pump water from the tank and on the "fire".

  1. Open the intake valve.
  2. Engage the power to the pump. Put gear into neutral.
  3. Pull lever to center. Wait 5 seconds. Pull all the way down. Put gear into drive.
  4. Prepare to prime the pick up suction.
  5. Suction valve open.
  6. Open the valve to the pressure hoses. Engage by pulling down slowly.
  7. Open nozel and aim water to "fire."

That's It!
