Performing an Annual Fire Apparatus Equipment Assessment

Pump testing is an integral and vital part of apparatus safety and maintenance. Imagine arriving on the scene of a multiple-alarm fire, laying hose (every firefighter`s dream and every engineer`s nightmare), hooking up to the hydrant, and starting to pump water--only to have the pump fail after 10 minutes. One question that might be asked at such a time is, could the pump failure have been prevented by an annual pump test?
