Basic Fire Hydraulics Workbook

by Ron Richmond

Designed for practicing critical hydraulic calculations

Basic Fire Hydraulics Workbook, combines graphics, concise explanations, and step-by-step examples and exercises to help both beginning and experienced pump operators learn to calculate quickly and accurately while under pressure on the fireground.

The book begins with simple math concepts and progresses toward more complex topics, such as engine pressure, friction loss, and drafting operation.

Realistic scenarios are incorporated into each unit to provide context for the various math calculations presented, and make this a handy companion to Hydraulics for Firefighting or any hydraulics book.

  • Improve response time with by learning methods of calculations that allow firefighters to adapt quickly to ever-changing nature of incidents
  • Build knowledge of math concepts and practice skills with a logical progression of topics and exercises from beginning to end of the workbook
  • Evaluate knowledge of critical calculations and track progress with Answers to Exercises included in the workbook
  • Quickly reference important information with an Appendix that includes principles and rules, formulas, charts, abbreviations and symbols, and table of weights and measures
