Editorial Reviews

This second edition of the Pumping Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook is designed to educate driver/operators who are responsible for operating apparatus equipped with fire pumps. The information in this manual aids the driver/operator in meeting the objectives found in Chapters 1, 4, 5, 8 and 10 of NFPA 1002, Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications (2003 edition). The information contained in this new edition is intended to update that in the first edition of the manual. The first edition incorporated material that was previously found in three separate IFSTA manuals: Fire Department Pumping Apparatus, Fire Stream Practices, and Water Supplies for Fire Protection. The purpose of this manual is to present general principles of pump operation, along with the application of those principles wherever feasible. It is also meant to guide driver/operators in the proper operation and care of apparatus. This manual includes an overview of the qualities and skills needed by a driver/operator, safe driving techniques, types of pumping apparatus, positioning apparatus to maximize efficiency and water supply, fire pump theory and operation, hydraulic calculations, water supply considerations, relay pumping principles, water shuttle procedures, foam system operation, and apparatus maintenance and testing.

Format: Paperback
This is your typical IFSTA manual that is as exciting to read as a phone book. I independently read this book along with four others for a promotional exam. Aside from the fact that it is bone dry, it is easy to comprehend which allowed me to recall the information needed for the exam. Again, not exciting but the facts are there for those who want to learn about this topic.

Format: Paperback
Typical IFSTA book, with (IMHO) some concepts being poorly explained or only partly explained (especially in the formulas section), leading to confusion and necessity for further research. Book should be a reference as well as book that can be used to follow along with class PowerPoint session.

Great delivery, came about a week early, which I needed because the class was time sensitive. The problem I had was that with in the first week of using the book, the binding fell apart and entire chapters began to just fall out. Poorly made binding

Great value for this training material and study guide, however, the packaging was less than acceptable , as the larger, heavier book was received quite damaged on one corner and substandard bubble wrap was used for such a heavy item. The package was received torn, damaged and some parts of the outer box were torn away. Not the best experiece for the item expected!!

I have to study this book for an upcoming promotional exam. If you have never read or studied from an IFTSA book its a treat. All the sleep you need is started after the first page. Drink coffee.
