Perrysburg Fire Division, Atlantic Emergency Services
Class: Water on the Fire - What's your flow?

With today’s modern fire behavior, fires are burning hotter and faster than ever. The discussion of having an adequate amount of GPM is a topic in the fire service that all department members should be aware of. This class will discuss the history of fire ground flows, discuss the department's current target fire ground flow, and how to properly flow this with the equipment they currently have. A hands-on demonstration will also be provided to show how flow & pressure data can be obtained to make your fire department better.
