Testing Capabilities of Squad 12

Squad 12 has been in service for slightly over a month and during a training program held Saturday, February 14, firefighters learned more about the capabilities – and limitations -- of the pump.

Since Squad 12 is typically the first-out unit, part of the training was to determine what the pump system could actually do in real-life scenarios and how it would perform with an engine pumping to it, or flowing from a fire hydrant.

Squad 12 incorporates a CET skid-unit tank, pump and engine assembly.

During a variety of exercises, it was determined the pump can flow up to two 1-1/2” attack lines with both mounting Task Force Tips automatic nozzles, though using a single attack line is a better and safer option.

Squad 12 was designed and purchased as a multi-use, quick-response unit, primarily for medical, brush and passenger vehicle fires. It will also be utilized as a quick-response unit for structure fires with the goal of quick interior attacks and rescuing victims before larger apparatus can arrive on a scene.
