NFPA 1962 Flow Testing:
This offering is a product rather than a class. This product is provided to the department to turn the following “needs” into “haves” by completing the objectives provided as “goals”. In doing so, we flow all attack setups on all apparatus, inventory the nozzles, hose, and appliances, test that the proper pump discharge pressure is providing the proper GPM, and ensure the department is aware at what pressures they are flowing their desired GPMs. This is an extensive test, that usually takes +/- 4 hours per apparatus and flows all setups that are able to be achieved the foreground including all preconnects, extended stretch setups and master stream devices.
- Need #1: Providing the knowledge of liability involved if a department does not follow NFPA 1710 188.8.131.52.2 (3) or NFPA 1962. - Need #2: Flow testing attack packages to provide proof and documented support that these standards are being met throughout the organization. - Need #3: A pump chart on each apparatus capable of pumping over 300 GPM. - Need #4: Knowledge for the department to perform this test. - Need #5: Knowledge for each pump operator to know how to use said pump charts. -Need #6: Inventory lists for all attack package hose numbers, appliance numbers and nozzle numbers. - Goal #1: Relieve the department from any liability by providing proof and documentation that these NFPA recommendations are being followed. - Goal #2: Integrate a pump chart for each apparatus capable of pumping over 300 GPM and educate the pump operators to use the chart to keep department operations streamlined and in line to department standards. - Goal #3: Educate the department in two aspects: One person of the department’s choosing may undergo a Train-the-Trainer and will follow the flow tester one-on-one to show them how to flow test and the equipment needed so they could potentially do this year after year to maintain the NFPA standard requirements. One person of the department’s choosing may undergo a Train-the-Trainer course to understand how the pump charts function
