  1. Hundred block split at 60 freeway?
    • 2300 North
    • 2400 South
  2. Front & side suction hose & 2 1/2" filler hose tested at?
    200 psi
  3. Once all hose has been filled for hose testing, the discharge valve shall be set at?
    Approximately 1/4 open
  4. BE 136 tank size?
    750 gallons
  5. WT 133 portable tank size?
    3500 gallons
  6. Calculating additional GPM output
    • From Static to Residual
    • 0 - 10% = 3 times current volume
    • 11 - 15% = 2 times current volume
    • 16 - 25% = 1 time current volume
    • over 25% = less then current volume
  7. Tire tread depth for steering and non-steering axles?
    • Steering = 4/32" on all treads
    • Non-steering = 2/32" on all treads
  8. WT 133 tank size
    3000 gallons
  9. Aerial Capacities on grades?
    • 0 - 6%(0 - 3.5 degrees) = Full Capacity
    • 6% - 14%(3.5 to 8.0 degrees) = 50% Capacity
    • Over 14% (9 degrees) = Operation Prohibited
  10. What position should transfer valve be in when priming pump during drafting operations and why?
    • Volume (Parallel)
    • Air can get trapped inside pump if it is in Pressure (Series) and possibly reducing effective drafting.
  11. Pump pressure for capacity test?
    150 psi in volume for 20 minutes.
  12. 70% of rated capacity test should be pumped at what pressure?
    200 psi for 10 minutes
  13. 50% of rated capacity test should be pumped at what pressure?
    250 psi in pressure mode for 10 minutes
  14. Water system zones locations:
    13th street
    8th street
    4th street
    Phillips street
    • 13th = Between 8th and 4th streets
    • 8th = Between 4th and Phillips/Mission/Francis
    • 4th = Between Phillips/Mission and 60 w/o Haven
    • Phillips = Between 60 and Riverside & Francis and Philadelphia e/o Haven
  15. Water System Capacities
    • 13th Street = 8.75 million gallons
    • 8th Street = 35.75 million gallons(largest)
    • 4th Street = 4.75 million gallons(smallest)
    • Phillips Street = 14.5 million gallons
  16. Don't operate unit 251 in wind conditions exceeding?
    30 mph
  17. Always keep arial ladders at least how many feet away from all wiring?
    10 feet
  18. Don't operate units 252, 253 & 254 with personnel on ladder elevated in wind conditions exceeding?

  21. What to do for "Stop Engine" light while driving.
    • 1. Check gauges
    • 2. Stop operations
    • 3. During Emergency response actions depend on factors (gauges, distance to emergency, type of response)
