The primary apparatus in municipal fire protection is the pumping engine. "Pumpers" are equipped with fire pumps driven by the chassis engine and are rated to a performance standard when manufactured as defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). To ensure that these pumpers perform year after year at or near their original rating of pressure and flow, they need to have a pump test annually. Local authorities and insurance rating agencies look to fire departments for records of these pump tests to help ensure adequate fire protection for any given community. Pump testing can be done at your fire station with state of the art equipment in an environmentally safe manner; protecting your pump, your equipment and your personnel.
