Fire Hose Testing

 

A challenge for many fire departments, especially volunteer departments,

 

is finding personnel to assist with annual fire hose testing. This task

 

is manpower intensive and although it seems to be fairly simple

 

there are many intricacies to the NFPA 1962 standard that can easily

 

be overlooked.

 

 

Our team of hose testing personnel operate over the summer months

 

performing hose testing on attack lines & supply lines of any diameter

 

cloth and rubber hose. All lines from apparatus are pulled, tested and

 

repacked as good or better than prior to testing. We truly believe in the

 

phrase "If it's packed pretty, it pulls pretty" All spare storage rolls are

 

retrieved, tested and placed back in storage.

 

 

A 300 foot area and a water supply from a municipal system or booster tank

 

is needed for testing which can be done at your facility or another suitable

 

location in your coverage area. Once testing is completed, your department will

 

receive an electronic copy with an itemized inventory of each length of hose

 

tested for department documentation and to provide the AHJ & ISO if

 

requested.
