Pumpers: Design, Body Configurations, Plumbing
Course will review the different options to consider when purchasing a pumper. Body styles and what that means for the apparatus in compartmentation (also useful for aerials), hose beds, and ground ladder storage will be discussed. Pump panel location and layout, single stage vs two-stage pumps, pump plumbing including intake and discharge options will be discussed to understand how a department can maximize the pumpers versatility and take advantage of the modern pumper/diesel engine options.
