Training Night – Hose Testing
May 10, 2017
We took the Fire Engine to the Seaman’s Museum on Marine Drive. We conducted the annual hose testing on Unit 16. This process involved removing all of the fire hose, extending them, and exposing them to high pressure. The purpose is to find any leaky seals or holes which could compromise the hose during a fire. Tonight we removed several sections of hose from the truck to send away for repair.
