What's on Your Engine Company #03 - Keeping It Simple...Again
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By President Mark Davis

We are always fans of keeping things simple when it comes to operating a fire truck on the emergency scene. We recently got to see Jarrettsville VFC's (MD) Engine 713 in action drafting from one of our bridge-mount dry fire hydrants. While looking over the pumper we liked what we saw on the rear end regarding the markings on the direct tank fill, the rear intake, and the rear discharge connections. The blue arrows make it simple....not FD foolproof...but simple. Nice work.

This is an excellent idea for any location on an apparatus with multiple connections, especially LDH connections.

Only minor suggestion I would add, keep the intake arrows blue, change the discharge arrows to red or orange.
