Water Supply Class Held in Pine Mountain

As part of the ongoing Registered Volunteer Firefighter class, a water supply class was conducted in Pine Mountain in March.

The class was split over a Thursday evening and the following Saturday.

The first part of the class was chiefly classroom instruction that included information on the different types of water systems. Unique in Harris County, Pine Mountain has a water system that is gravity fed.

In addition to the information found in the text, part one of the class featured hands-on fire hydrant testing procedures to determine static pressure, residual pressure, and flow rates. Students also learned the meaning of hydrant cap colors that indicate flow rates.

Part two of the water supply program was almost entirely hands-on, as students practiced catching and wrapping fire hydrants, using hose clamps, using forward hose lays and reverse hose lays, relay pumping, and finally utilization of drop tanks and drafting.

The Registered Volunteer Firefighter class is continuing with live fire training scheduled for May.
