Today we had our annual Pump Testing completed on both Engines 1 and 2 at Station 1. The pumps go through a series of test on pump performance as well as pump pressure and vacuum. Some of the test are, Pumping 100% capacity @ 150 psi for 20 minutes, 70% capacity @ 200 psi for 10 minutes and 50% capacity @ 250 psi for 10 minutes. Engine 1 at full capacity is rated to pump 1500 gallons of water per minute and Engine 2 at full capacity is rated to pump 1250 gallons per minute. Both trucks passed all tests. Tests were completed by Mark Pomasl.
