    Sorry I've only been around long enough to throw a hand grenade into the room and run until now.

    I guess I should take the time to properly check in.

    - FD member someplace for coming up on 33 years; the first 15 as volunteer, and 18 as career.
    - Asst. Chief with my current department. Was Chief at my vollie department, but had to quit when I realized I didn't have the time needed to do the job right. (I hate half-assing a job.)
    - Medic since 1977 (it was only 96 hours to get there when I graduated; my program was 600 hours, and that was unheard of in that era)
    - State Fire Instructor since 1981,
    - Adjunct Faculty at Ohio Fire Academy (not been real busy there for a couple of years due to other projects)
    - Faculty of the Technical Studies Department of Ohio University
    - Hazmat Specialist
    - Hazmat Instructor at Ohio University
    - Fire Investigator/Arson Canine Handler
    - Big believer in education. I begin the Executive Fire Officer Course at Ohio State this spring quarter.

    Ya know, maybe we should find a time for all the "Buckeye Boyz" to get together for real at a central location. There's a pretty nice Irish Pub in Columbus where the Guinness is cold, and the Bushmill's is plentiful.

    Old Chief's Car.... I know where we can get a slightly used mini-pumper with no operating pump to take. It has very very low mileage..... it would have even lower mileage if it wasn't for the many trips to Nesquehoning.

    If there isn't a return policy, they better make one up real fast!!!

    Of course, you would think that after all of their problem vehicles, they would be used to it!!

    Well the pump was rebuilt and pump tested and is supposed to be in working order. Had to put another new alternator on too (#8). I guess will wait and see what breaks next.

    Actually the pump was NOT tested. It was too cold yesterday to do it and they were going to do it today because it was going to be warmer, but when we got there to pick it up the guy said they were going to do it this afternoon, but Chief told them not to worry about it since we were already on our way........

    Aside from it breaking down on us on the Turnpike in Elyria and some roadside repairs with the Leatherman, it's fixed.........

    100% capacity flow at 150 psi for 20 min (that's 1000 gpm if it's a 1000 gpm pump, etc.), 10 min at 70% at 200 psi, 10 min at 50% at 250 psi. That's an in service pump test (well, part of it!) If you want to do an acceptance test, usually done on new vehicles, hold that 150 psi at 100% capacity for 2 hours, and the 70% and 50% tests for 30 min each. You might want to keep a close eye on your temp gauges for this one!!


    If you can't trust it to pump this, you can't trust it when lives depend on it!!

    Sorry, Ed. Little too complicated pimp testing for me. I was just planning on running it for awhile at various pressure to see if it's leaking and that it's actually working. I leave the serious stuff to the professional who gets paid to do it!
