    WTFD10,

    Yep we were running on a AMA for a Possible Structure fire. A local volunteer called our station to let us know that our lightbar wasn't working. We cycled the switches and went on, we got cancelled and started to head back to the station. About then we noticed that the radio was dead....we hit a bump and it came back on. I thought hey we'll call the Maint. Captain and let him know when we get to the station. We turn the corner to the street that the station is on we notice the smell of smoke in the truck (and its not our gear) .

    We all get out of the truck and I look under my seat and I see flames...we do what we do best and take it back to the station. When the antenna wire started heating up it burned a hole in the main bar wiring which caused it to short out (no lights). It melted all the wiring for the radio, the covering on the antenna cable and some wiring to the lightbar.

    The radio company already took responsibilty for the fire....we have KME electricians coming in today to check everything out and hopefully I will have my truck back Monday.

    Hey, 77 and you other guys with "iffy" pumps - want to check the seals without freezing your fingers off? Do a vacuum test. I do the annual In-Service apparatus pump tests on my department, and one thing we do is check the integrity of the seals and such of the pump. At the same time we check the valves, but you won't have to do that if you just want to check the pump seals.

    Drain the pump. (and lets not get into who runs their pump wet or dry in the winter!) <G>

    Close and cap all inlets (and outlets since you're not checking them.)

    Operate the primer until you've achieved 22 inches of vacuum. Since you're not doing a formal test, ballpark it with the pump panel main gauge.

    Shut off the engine, watch the gauge, and listen for hissing (leaking air). To pass the test, it must not drop more than 10 inches of vacuum in 5 minutes. If it does, you got a leaky seal somewhere. But be sure the leak isn't just an improperly closed drain or something.

    (If you want to check your outlet valves at the same time, close all valves, remove all caps and hoses from the outlet connections, then do this test. If you have a leaking valve, you can find which one by simply covering each opening in turn with your hand. You'll hear and feel which one is leaking.)

    Headache factor is nil for me today. Don't know about all of the others. Some had reserved rooms at the French Quarter. Was a good night and good time had by all.

    Congrats to ffsmromstadt13 on getting Firefighter of the Year! This was his 2nd time.

    One of our city council members (who used to be a member of the FD) acquired an old hydrant and sandblasted and repainted it. He donated it to us and that is another "award" for the firefighter of the year. He has to take it home and put it in his house somewhere and keep it until next year where it will get passed on to the next one.

    I heard the message when I got home last night. Actually I heard Kim on there at 0230, so I don't know if she took 4 or 8.

    Yup...I was at OSU just last week, as a matter of fact. I was in class in Pfahl Hall all week. I'm only there for a week in the spring, and a week in the fall over a 3 year period. I've got 2 more visits to go, and I gradjeeate.
