Hydraulics for Firefighting, 2E

by William Crapo

This revised edition of Hydraulics for Firefighting effectively teaches hydraulics by addressing the underlying science in a basic, understandable way. Each chapter builds on the last with a logical, systematic approach.

The simplification of this complex subject, including the updating of formulae, makes the text usable for both rookie and veteran firefighters and those preparing for promotional examinations.

New features of this edition include: steps of pump operation, testing fire pumps, calculating hose lengths for foam educators, and an expanded rural water supply section.

The book is ideal for college level courses and correlates to the course objectives of the Fire and Emergency Services in Higher Education (FESHE) model curriculum for Fire Protection Hydraulics & Water Supply, as well as an excellent solution for fire departments and fire academies training new pump operators.

  • Updated to 2003 Edition of NFPA Standard 1002 for Driver/Operators and correlates to FESHE course objectives for Fire Protection Hydraulics & Water Supply
  • Theories and examples are based on practical scenarios that relate to situations a pump operator will encounter on scene
  • Designed to present a thorough study of the subject, each chapter builds upon the previous, presenting simple to complex problems to ensure mastery of Hydraulics
  • 'Firefacts' presented throughout the text highlight practical advice on safety and proper procedural methods required on scene in order to prepare aspiring pump operators for job proficiency
